Summer of Free Sporting Activities Coming to Tamworth

Calling_all_sports_starsWith the Women’s World Cup in full swing and the Rugby World Cup set to be hosted in Britain in September, kids are being encouraged to take part in a free summer of sport.

Tamworth Borough Council’s Sports Development Team has unveiled its brand new programme of sporting events, which will run throughout the school summer holiday.

The seven-week scheme starts on July 20 and runs until September 4, with a wide range of activities.  And this year, for the first time, all activities will be completely free of charge

A whole host of traditional sports including rugby, swimming, boxing and tennis are all on offer.  In addition, there will be a range of more unusual activities including the Sky Trail rope, bridge and beam course, tenpin bowling, ice skating, watersports week and street dance.

Activities take place across the borough, with venues at the Castle Grounds, Tamworth Boxing Club, Wilnecote Leisure Centre, Tamworth Assembly Rooms, Planters Garden Centre, Cliff Lakes and Tamworth Namco Funscape bowling alley.

Cllr Rob Pritchard, Tamworth Borough Council Deputy Leader, said, “This programme has been designed to offer something for everyone and we are hoping that young people from across Tamworth will sign up to try out a wide range of sporting activities, completely free of charge.

“We have been working with sports clubs from across the borough to put together the summer programme, which means we can offer a wide range of events for the seven-week break.”

Details of all the events can be seen on the Tamworth Borough Council website at
