For the 2nd year in a row, this summer the city of Brighton & Hove will come together for the Pride Diversity Games, a truly unique event that sees community groups, businesses and individuals united by sport, regardless of sexuality, race, age or ability in a weekend of sporting achievements and fun-filled events.

A weekend that will reflect the wonderful diversity of Brighton & Hove, the Pride Diversity Games will be a citywide celebration as we hop, skip and jump together in a variety of inclusive and fun sporting events including tennis, football, rugby, golf, basketball, cricket, badminton and more.

The 2016 Pride Diversity Games on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July, in association with BLAGSS, TransCanSport, Sussex County FA, Sussex Cricket and other organisations, will see venues across Brighton and Hove including the Sussex University Sports Complex, Hollingbury Golf Course, Preston Park and Hove Park hosting a variety of sporting events. Be it mixed doubles on the courts, scrummages on the field, shooting hoops on the court or scoring in the football tournament, the Pride Diversity Games will top your sporting scoreboards this summer.

The Pride Diversity Games FunDay and Rainbow Run will take place on Sunday 24th July at Preston Park, Brighton. A fabulous and free event for spectators, it will be a day for the entire city to enjoy with fun activities including the 5K Rainbow Run, those must-do FunDay classics like Egg & Spoon, Sack Race, Tug Of War challenge and Three-Legged race plus great entertainment and sporting demonstrations for all to enjoy. Sunday’s event at Preston Park will also include the Pride Diversity Games prize giving ceremony as well as a community picnic, fun and games.

The Pride Diversity Games are a fundraising event for the Rainbow Fund, enabling its continued support of local LGBT charities and organisations.
