Supporting local sport in Cornwall

Cornwall School Games

We are delighted to sponsor the Cornwall School Games so that more young people in Cornwall can be inspired by PE and school sport. A new collaboration with Cornwall Sports Partnership (CSP) aims to engage young people of all ages and abilities in regular physical activity. The Games also have a strong inclusive element resulting in more meaningful opportunities being available for young disabled or disengaged people.

Staff from the Cornwall Sports partnership will use the expert research carried out at the University’s Centre for Environment and Human Health at the Knowledge Spa in Truro and world class Sports Science Department at St Luke’s campus in Exeter, as well the ever growing resource and facilities on its Penryn Campus to help children improve their performance.

Local sports teams

We are committed to supporting local sport in our community.

As well as our collaboration with Cornwall Sports Partnership, we do this by sponsoring the Penryn RFC Colts, Penryn junior netball team and Falmouth Community Youth Football. Our support enables the teams to buy new kit and equipment. 

The University of Exeter is delighted to be sponsoring the Cornwall School Games for the next 3 years. This is a fantastic initiative for young people of all ages in Cornwall. As The Times and The Sunday Times Sports University of the Year 2015/16, we understand the benefits sport can bring to everyone in terms of health and wellbeing, collaboration, raising aspirations and achieving personal goals.
