Summer Sports Zone

‘Adults Summer Sports Zone’

 

The Bunyan Sports Centre now hosts a brand new programme which provides multi-activity sessions for adults with learning and/or physical disabilities. The sessions will take place at 12.30pm - 2.30pm, from 19th – 23rd August.

 

The ‘Adults Summer Sports Zone’ sessions are aimed at those aged 16 and over, and will help individuals develop new, and improve existing, skills in such sports as: trampolining, tag rugby, cricket and taekwondo.

 

Carers and/or relatives are welcome to attend.

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “This packed listing of sports events provides an opportunity for people to get together and socialise while taking part in activities that impact positively on their health. There is a wide-range of facilities on offer and we hope as many people as possible come and make good use of the amenities.”

 

Cllr Colleen Atkins, Portfolio Holder for Adults Services at Bedford Borough Council said: “The benefits of taking part in regular exercise are well known and can be particularly important to adults with learning and/or physical disabilities by helping to improve such things as muscle strength and much more. The Council is committed to making our services available for everyone.”

 

The cost to attend is £5 per session, or £20 for the week (5 sessions). For details visit www.bedford.gov.uk/sport
