GRASMERE SPORTS COMMITTEE LTD

 

We are all excited about bringing the Sports back again ...   

Work is going full steam ahead on the 2022 Sports, and the focus is firmly on 'taking part', whether that is in the wrestling, fell races, hound trails or the dog show.

There will be lots for our younger visitors to do with fun children's races, lots of bikes to try - all in addition to the children's classes in the wrestling, fell races and dog show.

We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone again at the Sports Field on Sunday 28th August 2022.  Gates open at 09:00 and the Bellman will get things going at 10:00.

GRASMERE SPORTS

The 2022 Annual Grasmere Lakeland Sports, now celebrating 172 years of existence, has been a regular annual event since 1868, unbroken except for the two periods of the First and Second World Wars, and now in 2020 for Covid-19. Now one of the most popular traditional events in the English Lake District, participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling, Fell Running and Hound Trails.

and Little Nippers racing

One of the largest falconry displays in the country and a static display of approximately 15-20 different birds of prey from all around the world.

Between the flying demonstrations you will have the chance to hold and be photographed with one of these magnificent birds.

Look out for the lurcher racing displays, which were so much fun in 2018 when they were last with us at Grasmere.
