Nottinghamshire Sports Day

26 August 2019


Join Southwell for the first Nottinghamshire Sports Day, bringing together sporting stars from the region from many different sports including Notts County FC, Mansfield Town FC, Nottingham Rugby, Leicester Rides Basketball plus more to be announced. As it is still in the summer holidays, it really is the perfect opportunity to get together with friends and family and enjoy a fun filled day at the races. Under 18’s, as to all our fixtures, are admitted free of charge.

There will be lots of sporting games going on throughout the day all around the racecourse site, together with pony rides and much more. There is also pony racing taking place after racing itself on the day.
