Don't miss the Westfield Health British Transplant Games

Get ready for one of the most inspiring sporting events of the summer as the Westfield Health British Transplant Games comes to Yorkshire!

This four-day annual event (28th to 31st July 2022) will witness over 2,000 transplanted athletes, live donors, family and friends meeting up from across the UK.

Teams from hospitals compete in a range of sports from snooker to squash and tennis to ten-pin bowling.

The transplant community has had to wait three years for the return of the British Transplant Games after its double postponement due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

More than 7,000 people in the UK are currently in need of a transplant and tragically
three people die each day while on the waiting list.
