This year’s new venue, the recently opened state of the art sports facility at the University of Nottingham, provides an ideal environment for athletes to focus on their performance.

There will be the chance to try new sports, such as Hockey, Throwball, Yoga and Rock-Climbing – alongside the usual favourites – Badminton, Dance, Dodgeball, Football, Golf, Netball, Squash and Table Tennis, to name but a few.

In addition, the Aga Khan Foundation Walk & Run will take place over the European Sports Festival weekend. Participate in the sponsored 10k run, 5k walk and 1k fun run and enjoy getting fit, while also supporting the work of our global institutions.

To find out when sports are taking place, please see the Sports Schedule.

The rules and format of play for each Sport will be available soon.
