HASSRA Festival

HASSRA Wales Team - volunteers wanted

Following the Governments recent announcement regarding the ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown HASSRA are planning to re-instate the September festival, which is due to take place 10th – 12th September.

Programme of Events

This promises to be the biggest Festival so far, focusing on National Champi­on­ships and some additional activities, such as fitness and cycling, to underline HASSRA’s commitment to health and wellbeing.

 The planned events are  

  • ·       Badminton

  • ·       Cycling Sportive
  • ·       5-a-side Football
  • ·       Fitness Workshop
  • ·       GK Quiz

  • ·       Netball
  • ·       Rounders
  • ·       Sports Quiz
  • ·       Squash
  • ·       Tennis

There will be no off-site events such as pool, snooker and ten pin bowling as the venues remain closed and HASSRA are unable to confirm availa­bility.

Regional Qualifiers

It will not be possible for HASSRA Wales to run their usual qualifiers.

Never­theless, HASSRA Wales have reported, to the Festival planners, an intention to enter teams or individuals into every event.

For all events we are seeking volunteers to represent Wales on the following conditions:

·       For events where qualifiers were selected for the 2020 Festivals it is proposed that those teams or individuals will be approached to attend this September.

·       Where a previous qualifier is not available to attend the September Festival a replacement will be selected from the volunteers.

The HASSRA Wales Festival Team Manager will be solely responsible for team selection so, if you would like to volunteer to take part in any event please write to HASSRA Wales at HASSRA.WALES@DWP.GOV.UK saying what events you are interested in and confirming your availa­bility,­ and willingness to travel to University of Warwick, for the weekend of 10th – 12th September.
