Virtual Inter House Sports Day | Abingdon Prep School

3 July 2020

Although we were unable to hold our annual Inter House School Sports Day for our Years 3 – 8 at Tilsley Park this year due to the pandemic, the Director of Sport organised a Virtual Garden Games live via Zoom instead.

The events consisted of the Speed Bounce (Speed), Target Throw (Accuracy), Shuttle Runs (Endurance), Colander Catch (Hand-eye Coordination), Standing Broad Jump (Power) and Keepie Uppies (Coordination). These events were exceptionally well represented and all of the events were keenly contested. While our Year 6 and Key Worker bubbles completed these events at school on the MUSA, the rest of the boys did this virtually with either their form teachers or their sports teachers.

The winners of each event was as follows:

Event 1
