GLL are holding open days at many of their centres on the weekend of the 23rd-24th July in order to drum up the excitement for Rio, and also inspire the younger generation to become more active. GLL have teamed up with I Am Team GB and ITV to promote this event and encourage as many people to take part as possible.
All open days are different depending on the centre, but will be similar in the fact that all events will be free, fun and active! Waterfront Leisure Centre is hosting a number of activities including:
- Football (12pm-1pm)
- Basketball (1pm-2pm)
- Rascals Soft Play (10am-2pm)
- Swimming (10am-12pm)
- Badminton (11am-1pm)
- Tennis (11am-1pm)
Natasha Sinha (ranked number one in the UK for biathlon and 3rd place national backstroke champion) has confirmed her attendance to answer questions about her sporting journey and athlete lifestyle. Natasha is an inspiring athlete who has taken a gap year to concentrate on her swimming and eventually transfer over to triathlon which she has previously been on the England Talent Programme. She is a great role model and will have a lot to talk about!
Whether you’re around for the whole day, or just want to drop in for an hour, these open days are a great opportunity to try something new, or continue practising an activity you already play. It can be a family occasion, or people can come on their own – a great chance to meet new people! Whatever your age, there is something for everyone at these open days.
