The Annual Dover–Calais Festival of Sport is always a hard fought event and this year was no exception. Seven teams from Calais visited Dover for a full day of competition with local teams. Dover took the overall cup this year by winning events in shooting, sea angling, pool and snooker, table tennis, and water polo while Calais retained trophies in swimming and basket ball.

All events were keenly watched by Town Mayor Councillor Neil Rix who had an enthusiastic go himself at shooting, basket ball and table tennis. Civic Representatives from Calais Council were also present to support their teams throughout the day.

The Festival of Sport is due to take place in Calais next year. It great fun and there is always room for more sports. If you are part of a Dover team that would like to take part or work with the Council to improve sporting opportunities in the Town please contact Tracey Hubbard at the Town Council offices.
