Golf Foundation team takes it to the Summit

The Golf Foundation is delighted to attend this year’s School Games National Summit, on November 19. Impressively, the whole conference will be staged online by the Youth Sport Trust, attended by delegates from across the education sector.

Members of the Golf Foundation team, Alice Lowe, Martin Crowder and Andy Leigh, are sharing their golf development expertise with leading educationalists, thus influencing how golf can play a key role in the school setting for fun, safe, inclusive and energetic learning and play for boys and girls of all abilities.

Andy Leigh said: “I’m really looking forward to this: it’s a great opportunity for us to share our knowledge to a perfect audience of teachers, sports officers and educationalists. The tag-line for the summit is “Reimagining the School Games”, and we’ll be talking with delegates to show all the strengths of golf as a school sport, including its essential inclusivity for any player.”

Alice and Martin are hosting a ‘virtual exhibition stand’, with Andy taking part in the workshops at this #SGSummit20 which includes young volunteer hosts from our schools and speakers including Ali Oliver, CEO Youth Sport Trust; Born Barikor, Founder, Our Parks (see #FitForFree); Mike Diaper, Executive Director, Sport England and Geoff Barton, General Secretary, Association of School and College Leaders.
