SOUTH WEST Sport is committing to a "flexible' version of its annual multi-sport event in November.
SWS CEO Mike Neoh said the South West Games would run from November 7 to 15 in a modified format due to uncertainty around coronavirus restrictions.
"We are looking at a modified games because there is still uncertainty around the type of activities we can do and the type of sports that can participate," he said.
"We've had good expressions of interest so far with 10 different sports already signed up but we want to target 20 to 40 sports.

"A good example of nimbleness is the South C Dragons can't get in their boat because of the proximity of participants so they're running a community walk. That type of flexibility we can have.
"Other sports like soccer might run traditional seven-a-side matches or other sports might do fun runs, fitness-based activities or other community events. We're being very flexible this year."
Neoh said running the annual event was important to the south-west community.
"We have seen major events cancelled so we wanted to keep continuity and looking at doing something a bit unique," he said.
Examples of participation events could be a fun run/walk, social/modified round-robin competition or fitness challenge.
"It's a good opportunity for clubs to engage with their members, keep their volunteers engaged and keep the club's profile out there," Neoh said.
