Havering Sports Council Decathlon
Entries open mid 2021 onwards
Havering Sports Council are launching a competition open to residents to encourage them to try sports provided by affiliated clubs in the borough. We've called it a Decathlon, but it's not just a Decathlon. If you can't manage the full ten sports, there are prizes for completing five (pentathlon) and seven(heptathlon) sports. We are looking to provide a certificate after five events have been completed, a medal for seven and a t-shirt for the full ten. We're hoping that those that complete all ten will entered into a prize draw for a membership prize (more later).
The competition is open to adults and children, but to due to constraints imposed by either the sport or club a few sports are not suitable for children or indeed adults. You can see from the list below, which are open to you or your children, but we are encouraging you to try sports with your children where appropriate.
All sports are free to try and there is no obligation to join the club. In most cases you will be taking part in a club's introductory session, but in some cases, clubs will be putting on special sessions for you. Therefore, please check from the list below when the taster sessions are available to you. It may be necessary to book ahead depending upon the sport.
As an entrant, all you need to do is register with us using the online form below. After making sure that the session is available for your chosen time, you then arrange to go along to the club of your choice and take part. Afterwards, the organiser will contact us to confirm that you have done so. The club concerned will determine whether you have been successful, but as long as you have tried that's all we're looking for.
