The Pride Diversity Games 2016 events will be held in Brighton and Hove over the weekend of Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July, and are run by Brighton Pride CIC in association with BLAGSS, TransCanSport, Sussex County FA, Sussex Cricket and other organisations. There are already 6 sports events confirmed for this year – football, golf, rugby, tennis, cricket and of course the Rainbow Run – as well as non- competitive sporting events such as yoga, Petanque, tennis for beginners, Pilates and walking. Access to sports venues such as squash courts, badminton courts and basketball courts are also being made available at low prices for this special weekend.

Up to 1,000 participants and 500 other visitors from all over the UK and Europe are expected to take part in the Games in our popular summer city and we look forward to welcoming all UK and European LGBT friendly sport clubs and individual sporting participants and enthusiasts. We offer you well organised sport events as well as some fun during the games.

The main venues for the Games so far are Sussex University Sports Complex, Hollingbury Golf Course, Preston Park and Hove Park.

2015’s games saw a  weekend that reflected the wonderful diversity of Brighton and Hove, the Pride Diversity Games was a citywide celebration of hopping, skipping and jumping together in a variety of inclusive and fun sporting events while fundraising for the Rainbow Fund, enabling its continued support of local LGBT+ charities and organisations.
