No need for boredom this summer holiday!

With more than 120 sports activities on offer this summer holiday, there is no reason for young people to be bored! 

Out today, (Monday 16 July), the new Thanet’s Summer of Sport Brochure 2012 details all of the free and chargeable activities available to keep young people active, entertained and inspired during the summer holidays. 

Organised and run by Thanet District Council’s Sport Matters team, the activities start on Monday 23 July and run until Friday 31 August. 

This year’s sports programme includes beach volleyball, surfing, sailing, hockey and athletics, plus many more, and aims to get young people and families to try some of the different sports that will be the focus of the London 2012 Olympics. 

Suitable for all young people aged eight and over, there are also activities for the whole family to enjoy including Engage Beach Blast (day of sport on Margate Main Sands), Disability Sports Day (held at Ramsgate Sports Centre), Thanet’s First Track and Field Games Event (held at the Marlowe Academy athletics track) and the Broadstairs Water Gala.

A handy pull-out guide is available at the back of the brochure which details what’s on everyday of the summer holidays - perfect to tear out and keep safe on the fridge. 

Cllr. Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “There are so many activities for young people and families to enjoy this summer in Thanet. There really is something for everyone. We are committed to supporting a wide range of sports and leisure activities and this year’s programme does just that. 

“Whether you are a beginner or a novice, there is an enormous range of activities to try and experience this Olympic year. 

“Although the weather hasn’t been a great start to the summer, with so many activities, indoor and outdoor on offer, there’s no reason for any young person to be bored this summer holiday.” 

The Sports Brochure will be handed out to all school children aged eight and over, and is also available at sports centres, libraries, doctors and dentist surgeries.
