SPORTS MOBILE (Pictures above): The ever-popular Sports Mobile will return in 2022, hoping to inspire the nation to participate in a wide variety of sporting activities and challenges. The team will bring along a range of sports kit suitable for all ages and abilities to take part in football, cricket, tag rugby, tennis, dodgeball and athletics. Also included in the session is the Inflatable Arena which will be used to play human table football, along with acting as an enclosed space in which young people can play different sports such as dodgeball, handball, ultimate frisbee and many more. There will also be a mountain bike challenge course which consists of ramps and balance beams to test young people’s skills (bikes will be provided but young people are encouraged to bring their own along). Safety equipment will also be provided. Finally, inspired by the Commonwealth Games, there will be themed competitions to challenge our young athletes to throw the Javelin, jump the hurdles, run the relay and much more!

ADVENTURE MOBILE (Pictures above): The Adventure Mobile is made up of the Laser Combat Arena, and the Inflatable Mountain Climb. There will also be other generic sports and activity equipment. The outdoor Laser Combat Arena is made up of barricades, obstacles and cargo nets for the participants to dodge, duck and hide behind while using digital laser guns to ensure they experience the ultimate laser combat experience.  The Inflatable Mountain Climb is fantastic for allowing young people of all ages and abilities to climb and explore in a safe and encouraging environment.

Please spread the word about these FREE sessions to all of your friends!

Please note: All activities are weather dependent. Parents/Carers must complete a consent form BEFORE children and young people take part in the activities.
