For the third year running, Thanet District Council is aiming to help adults in Thanet who, previously, may not have felt that they have had the time or money to get involved with sport.
Sport 4 Life will be delivering a series of free sports activities across the area with sessions starting from Monday 14 January 2013 which will continue for 8 weeks.
Thanet District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, Cllr Iris Johnston said: “Many people can relate to wanting to keep active and fit, especially after the Christmas period. This scheme, run by Thanet District Council is a great way to bring together people, who are interested in the same thing. There’s something for everyone to get involved in such as Pilates, Futsal and dance classes. Get fit and give something new a go next year.”
All sessions are free and open to anyone aged 16 or over. Those who get the sports bug will then be helped to find a suitable activity after the 8 weeks of free activities ends.
Get into the rhythm on Monday lunchtimes with Zumba Gold, which is aimed at the active older participant, and is fun, social and friendly. These classes will take place at Hartsdown Leisure Centre between 1-2pm. Also on a Monday: learn to dance to the rumba, quickstep or foxtrot at The Baptist Church in Margate between 7.30-8.30pm.
Ladies, get back onto the court with Return 2 Netball. Boost your fitness and match play at Ursuline Sports Centre from 7-8pm on a Monday.
Emphasise your creativity, technique, ball control and passing in smaller spaces with Futsal, the ultimate 5-a-side football experience. This will take place at Hartsdown Leisure Centre on Tuesdays between 5.30-6.30pm.
On Wednesdays try your hand at indoor volleyball and warm up for the summer beach season. This fast and frantic game will be at St George’s School in Broadstairs from 6-7pm. Also on Wednesdays at Hartsdown Leisure Centre you could take part in fun and energetic light fitness workouts: easing your way back into the New Year with this full body conditioning session.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of your day and join in with the lunchtime Pilates classes, again at Hartsdown Leisure Centre on Thursdays from 1-2pm. Also on Thursdays, Ramsgate Sports Centre is holding badminton and table tennis tasters from 5.30-6.30pm.

All classes have a limited number of places available, so book in fast. For more details of the Sport 4 Life sessions, or to get yourself registered, visit or call 01843 577032.
