On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! Signature at Camberley Enjoys Summer of Sport

Signature at Camberley have hosted a summer of celebrations to mark the Commonwealth, and given their residents the opportunity to compete against one another in a tournament styled competition.

The Commonwealth Games, first held in 1930, is an international multi-sporting event involving athletes from the Commonwealth. Held every four years, the popular sporting tournament has this year been held in Birmingham, the UK’s second city, and is one that has captured the hearts and attention of many over the last 11 days.

For Signature at Camberley, the Commonwealth Games had run alongside Signature Sports Week, where residents have enjoyed inter-home competitions against other care homes across the Signature Senior Lifestyle organisation.

Residents at Camberley took part in several events, ranging from an egg and spoon race, basketball, bean bag discus, boules, to name but a few. There were two teams of residents wearing red and green bibs, and, after a titanic battle, the red team were eventually named victorious.

Signature at Camberley will conclude Sports Week with a Celebration BBQ on the 20th August. Residents, friends, family, and the local community have been invited to the luxury care home to join festivities. On what is set to be a wonderful day, guests will be able to indulge in hamburgers, hot dogs, wings, and locally produced sausages along with jackets and various salads. There will also be a selection of stalls, an animal petting farm, face painters, and plenty of live entertainment to enjoy.

David Windeatt Client Liaison Manager at Signature at Camberley, said:
“Everyone at Signature at Camberley have had the most wonderful summer of sport. Whilst enjoying the brilliant Commonwealth Games, we have also been enjoying our own competitive fun among residents and our fellow Signature care homes. Residents and Team Members alike have enjoyed competitive, well fought contests, all in good spirits!

“Congratulations to everyone involved, and to all Commonwealth medal winners.”

Speaking about the games, resident at the care home, Brian Phillips, said:
“For as competitive and as high a standard the Commonwealth Games may be, the true story this summer is the summer of sport that has taken place here at Signature at Camberley! Myself and my fellow residents have had so much fun taking part in the sporting activities held here at the home. It really is the taking part that counts, and I have loved every minute of it.”

The Summer of Sport at Signature at Camberley proved to be so much fun that residents have since asked if Sports Day could become a regular event.
