Maccabi GB believes that a Community that plays together stays together and our programming aims to bring as many people together as possible from all ages, abilities and religious observances.
We host a wide range of Community Sports Days, running everything from Badminton to Table Tennis, Netball to Lawn Bowls and Spinning to Walking Groups. By offering such a wide variety of sports, we are aiming to maximise the number of people we engage throughout the Community.
The most significant and far reaching of these Community Sports Day is the annual Maccabi GB Community Fun Run, which in its 11th year engaged 75 Communal Charities and Schools and over 6,500 people attend the day. £2 million has been raised for Jewish charities over the life of this event. With 1, 5 and 10 kilometre routes, the Maccabi GB Community Fun Run is the largest Communal event in the Jewish calendar and reaches across all generations and religious denominations.
This focus on bringing the Community together for a social experience is epitomised at the Community Dog Walk. With 3 or even 4 generations of family attending the event, although the Dog Show is extremely competitive, again the objective of the event is to create a positive recreational environment where over 250 members of the Community can come together in a fun and social space.
Through all the Community Sports Days organised, the social fabric of the events is constant throughout and there are many stories and anecdotes which confirm this. The Community Netball saw international Maccabiah netball players compete with those who haven’t played since school and the Community Badminton saw families come together and enjoy an afternoon of fun and competitive action.
