Beat the Street Swadlincote
Beat the Street is coming to Swadlincote! From 15th March to 26th April, Swadlincote is being transformed into a giant game! Beat the Street is a free, fun, walking cycling and wheeling game, which gets staff, pupils and their families out and about in the local area, having fun and keeping healthy.
Beat the Street is designed to get children and communities moving by helping people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to school every day, to improve physical and mental health and help embed physical activity into everyday life. So far, 1.6 million people and 5, 000 schools have taken part in games in 154 places across the UK and beyond.
School children and local communities will be able to collect their game cards and register to play. Game card readers called ‘Beat Boxes’ will be positioned around Swadlincote including outside schools and in parks. Each time a player taps the Beat Boxes with their registered cards, they will earn points for their school or community team. The total number of points will be counted on the leader board, and winning teams will win prizes for their efforts.
We will have lots of events and pop up games taking place between 15th March and 26th April, so keep checking www.beatthestreet.me
