Sports Show brings together over 35 different sports, well known sporting heroes and major national governing bodies - all under one roof at the NEC, Birmingham on the 25-26 June 2016 - for a unique weekend of indoor family sporting fun.
Sporting Equals have secured space at the inaugural Sport Show to bring some culture to the event by showcasing alternative activities. This will also be a great opportunity to network with sports sector and providers.
Like nothing you'll have experienced at the NEC before, Sports Show gives you and your family the chance to try a range of 'have a go' sports in the various Sports Worlds - from Archery to Athletics, Badminton to Bobsleigh and Cricket to Climbing to name but a few.
Whatever age or ability, everyone can get involved on the day and enjoy sport together as a family.
Your day ticket also gets you access to the Masterclass Arena to help you and your family brush up on those all-important skills. With the help of the professionals, the aim of the event is to inspire and help your family find sports you can enjoy doing together long after the show closes.
You'll also be able to take a break from all the action and catch up on the latest scores in our Hilton Family Fan Zone; including a giant screen showing the biggest games and matches being played over the weekend. And with all the various Sports Worlds, the Masterclass Arena, coaching sessions and even car parking included in your ticket price, it's a great value for money family day out – whatever the weather!
So t-shirts and trainers at the ready, prepare to play sport, live sport, love sport and more importantly, #ShareSport on the 25-26 June.
It's the ultimate indoor family day out!
