Lynx Golf has been chosen as the exclusive provider of golf coaching at the first-ever SportFest – a unique festival of family fun and sport supported by O2 and involving some of the UK’s greatest sporting legends.
Taking place over the weekend of 3-4th August at the beautiful Wormsley Estate, Bucks, up to 3,000 visitors will share world-class sports coaching, enjoy fun competitions, camp out, listen to good music and enjoy great food from Jamie Oliver.
Sports represented include rugby, cricket, tennis, netball and hockey, with Lynx appointed to manage all golf-related activities at a weekend in which children aged five to 16 can get hands-on coaching from true sporting heroes and world class coaches.
Superstars of world sport expected to be part of SportFest include Lynx player and ex-England rugby star, Austin Healey; former England cricket captain, Andrew Strauss; and gold-medal winning Olympic rowers, Sir Matthew Pinsent and Katherine Grainger.
Said Lynx Golf managing partner, Stephanie Zinser: “We are absolutely delighted and excited to be supporting the inaugural SportFest, which is a unique event and a celebration of sport, activity and the outdoors which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
“While it’s clear that the children who attend will have an absolutely amazing time, the team here at Lynx Golf loves the fact they will also learn lessons for life like teamwork, discipline and respect, as well as building their confidence.”
All children will experience the ‘Golf Zone’ which will feature a special fun layout prepared by Go Crazy Golf – including a bespoke crazy golf hole in the shape of the famous Lynx cat logo – and an amazing trick-shot display from Lynx’s Dean Davis.
Added Stephanie Zinser: “Lynx proved with the launch of Boom Boom 2 gas-filled golf clubs that we are a truly innovative brand and I think SportFest too is groundbreaking and an event that totally fits our ethos.”
SportFest is organised by SuperSkills Experiences Ltd a unique business dedicated to providing legendary shared experiences by some of the biggest names in sport.
