The Bamberg Bedford Sports festival is taking place in Bamberg this year from: 16th -18th September 2016

 

This is a longstanding event which sees sports clubs in these respective twin towns welcome their counterparts on an alternate basis, enabling clubs to enjoy international sporting competition in a friendly yet competitive environment and to forge new links and friendships, while expanding their sporting experiences.

Bamberg has provided a list of sports they would like to include in the 2016 festival;

How can your sports club get involved?

Communications with the Bamberg clubs is being coordinated by the Bamberg municipal authority. Bedford Borough Council is in contact with the Bamberg authority, and has offered to collate a list of all interested sports clubs from the Borough of Bedford (including appropriate contact details) interested in taking part in this year's event. Once the list has been passed on to Bamberg all contact/arrangements in relation to the Festival will be via the clubs involved and the Bamberg Authority

 

Interested? What to do next…

If your club is interested in taking part, please let us know, including the name, role (e.g. Club Secretary) and contact details of a primary contact.

 

We will require all details by May 31st after this date; we will pass the list to our contacts at the Bamberg authority, who will work to put relevant clubs there in touch with counterparts in Bedford Borough. Please email your registration details to: richard.tapley@bedford.gov.uk

 

Please note: If your club has already made contact with Bamberg you do not need to register your interest again

 

Financial Support

Sport Bedford has a small fund to which competing teams are able to apply to help with the costs of sending a team to Bamberg. Sport Bedford has a process in place for the awarding of support from this fund, and it requests that applications are made, once contact has been made with you from Bamberg (i.e. once it is clear that there is a corresponding club in Bamberg for you to compete with). If you have any queries about the fund or application process, you can contact the Sport Bedford treasurer, Mr Jim Lloyd i.lloyd2@btinternet.com
