As part of the School of Science and Technology SHAPE  Research Centre Seminar Series, Dr Barbara Bell, Manchester Metropolitan University presents: Investigating the impacts of mega-events in community sport and local communities.

Abstract

This research was undertaken as part of a consortium approach between the Local Authority and the University, referred to as the MMU/CE LEAP programme (Legacy Evaluation and Action Plan), to the hosting of Pre-Games Training Camps (PGTC) for visiting Oceania teams to the Olympics in 2012.   The research sought to  analyse the impacts of the hosting of Pre-Games Training Camps and the Get Set programme as part of the attempts by Regional agencies and organisations to leverage a legacy in community sport and schools.  The presentation will focus on the research attempting to capture this ‘legacy’  and highlight issues which might be pertinent considering the return of the Commonwealth Games to Birmingham in 2022.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Christopher Matthews

All welcome.
