Led by Argyle Community Trust, professional and community sport clubs across Plymouth are set to drive participation in Mayflower 400 and create a legacy of improved health and wellbeing post 2020.
This will be achieved through a combination of headline and grass roots events, ensuring that opportunities are available for people of all ages and abilities. For more information on the Mayflower sports activity visit the Argyle Community Trust
Mayflower 400 Community Sports Fund
Grants of up to £1,000 are available for local clubs to deliver their own Mayflower activity. To date, this has helped support a range of activities, including providing trophies and kits. Visit the Argyle Community Trust website for more information
12 Sports for 12 Months
From January 2020 Argyle Community Trust will work with local clubs, governing bodies and communities to promote a dedicated sport for a month. Making sure there are opportunities for new and sustained participants to become involved whilst promoting the wider Mayflower 400 sport programme.
Mayflower 400 Sports Week
The inaugural Mayflower Sports Week saw Plymouth Argyle, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth Raiders join forces for a fantastic triumvirate of sporting fixtures in March 2018, reaching an audience of 15,000. Each game included professional sports entertainment, pop-up stalls, and community activities. We’re keen to involve even more people in 2019 and 2020.
Mayflower Grassroots Activity Programme
We are supporting local clubs to deliver their own Mayflower competitions and activity. Branding and certificates are available, and we can help promote events through our website and social media. From football tournaments through to walks, if you’d like to discuss getting involved get in touch.
Mayflower 400 gives the city a chance for our sporting community to build relationships and raise its profile nationally and internationally. A number of clubs are already taking up this opportunity. David Ellis, Club Chairman, Plymouth Leander Swimming Club, said: "Plymouth Leander has been working with the Mayflower 400 team since 2017 with all of our galas having a Mayflower 400 theme, from the Harwich Cup Series in 2017 to the Southampton Cup series in this year. Mayflower 400 is a great opportunity to raise our profile, and as one of the city’s foremost sports institutions, we’re looking forward to inviting clubs from the US and Netherlands to compete against Plymouth’s swimming elite."
