Coronavirus Update – Spar Lancashire School Games


Update as of the 20/3/2020

  • Active Lancashire, after consulting with the School Games Organiser network, who have been in touch with the host venue, have decided to postpone the Dance Finals scheduled for the 5th May 2020 at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool.

Update as of the 16/3/2020

Active Lancashire as the event organiser for the Spar Lancashire School Games has taken the decision to postpone the following events:

  • Primary School/Small schools Indoor Athletics, Friday 20th March, Blackpool Sports centre
  • Emerging Table Tennis, Thursday 26th March, Garstang High School,
  • Swimming Gala, Tuesday 31st March, Salt Ayre Leisure Centre

We previously had been following DCMS Guidance, however we felt it was within the best interests of participants and schools to be proactive and make a decision to postpone these events in advance. We apologies for the inconvenience caused, however the safety of young people, attendees and any other individuals remains our priority. We also want to ensure the events remained meaningful, competitive and fun. Something which we didn’t believe we could guarantee. If this affects you then we do hope you understand and would ask you to please get in touch with Dominic Holroyd on 01772 299830 or email

Many thanks for your co-operation. 

As we all know, sport and activity play a vital role in maintaining health and wellbeing, and the government hugely values your work, particularly in this uncertain time.
