Each year something magical happens in the villages of Saddleworth
Although hard to believe nearly 800 children across the villages all enrol to take part in in nearly 1,000 training sessions cumulating in 154 different competitions in 13 different sports.
We're not aware of anything like it anywhere else in the country so something as a community we should all be proud of.
It is a way of encouraging children of all ages to try new sports, meet new friends and engage in some healthy competition between the different villages.
Training throughout the summer months and then all competitions are held throughout the month of September before celebration are held in each of the villages early October
