Reminiscing through the power of sport

Somerset Cricket Foundation are working alongside the Sporting Memories Foundation to launch a new programme; Sporting Memories. This new community initiative aims to bring people of retirement age together to reminisce about previous memories, experiences or moments in their lives through the power of sport. Sports memorabilia, past sporting events, physical activities, quizzes and guest speakers are used to create discussions around sporting events and memories.

Sporting Memories

Take part

Sessions are held every Tuesday morning, from 10.30am until 12:00pm, at Uphill Castle Cricket Club. Sessions are FREE with a complementary tea/coffee, biscuit and some friendly daces. Sessions will launch on Tuesday 13 June.

About the sessions

The initiative is open to MEN only aged 50 and over, but is primarily designed to support those living with early one set dementia, depression and loneliness – and their families – and those wishing to talk about sport with like-minded people. The match day programme for each session will follow this format:

  • 10.30am: KICK OFF
  • 10.30am – 11.15am: Sports Talk
  • 11.15 – 11.30: HALF TIME
  • 11.30 – 12pm: SPORTING GAME
