Sport is being taken out and about around Thanet this summer for young people to enjoy on their own doorstep.

The council’s Sport Matters parks tour is now underway and has already visited Dane Park in Margate and Minster recreation ground, where 116 young people have turned out to enjoy the activities on offer. These include the now famous inflatable football pitch, volleyball, rounders, cricket, Ultimate Frisbee and tug of war. It’s aimed at those aged eight to 18 years old and all events are free. You just need to turn up on the day.

The tour next heads to the Millmead SureStart Fun Day, which runs from 11am to 3pm on Tuesday 17 August. The next outing of the parks tour is to Newington Community School, as part of the National Play Day, between 12pm and 3pm on Thursday 26 August. The tour finishes on Minnis Bay seafront on Sunday 29 August between 12pm and 4pm.

Sports Development Officer, Martyn Cassell, said: “Our Sport Matters parks tour is always hugely popular, with our inflatable football pitch now a familiar sight around the area. It’s a great way of taking a variety of different sports out into the community and to the doorstep of young people in Thanet.”
