Beat the Street is coming to Swadlincote

Active Derbyshire, Getting Started, Move More, Support Others

Beat the Street, the free, fun, walking, cycling and wheeling game, is coming to Swadlincote in South Derbyshire.

From Wednesday 15 March to Wednesday 26 April, Swadlincote will be transformed into a giant game designed to get children and communities moving by helping people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to school every day, and 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.
