Shetland Sports Week

by Deborah Leggate -

Shetland is hosting it's first Sports Week from 3rd-9th September 2011.  The main aim of Sports Week is to raise the profile of sport in Shetland, particularly Commonwealth Games sports in the lead up to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.

There will be lots of opportunities to watch sport in Shetland and also 'have-a-go' at it yourself - all you need to do is turn up suitably dressed.  There are activities planned right across Shetland during the week and all are free of charge.
