Eddington Sports and Social

Monday 29th July – Sunday 4th August 2024

Location: Eddington Square

Ready, set, go! It’s time for Eddington’s summer event!

Hot on the heels of the hugely successful Beer Garden, Eddington Square will be transformed into a hub of happiness as Eddington Sports and Social pops up from Monday 29th July – Sunday 4th August 2024.

Bring your family, friends, and colleagues to our event village which celebrates Eddington’s international community through a love of sports. Watch the Olympic Games on the big screen, savour delicious food from much-loved food trucks, and enjoy refreshing drinks from our bars.

There will be activities galore such as a variety of weekday sporting taster sessions including Cricket, Volleyball, and Ultimate Frisbee, all building up to a fun-packed weekend as we bring in a climbing wall, reaction tests, strength challenges, and much more.* Don’t miss the pop-up play beach as well as arts and crafts for the young and young-at-heart: smiles are guaranteed!

So whether you are an Eddington resident or live in the wider Cambridge area, let’s get active for a week of socialising, sports, and celebration.

Entry to the event village is free, but we ask you to please register in advance so we can ensure the best experience for everyone. As a thank you for letting us know you are coming, you can collect your free Eddington frisbee (limited availability of 100 each day – first come, first served).

If you wish to attend one of the free sporting taster sessions, booking is essential and you can sign up via the links in the activity timetable below.

Celebrate gold with us this summer in Eddington!
