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! Canons Leisure Centre is hosting a number of activities including:

In addition to these activities we are delighted to announce that GLL Sport Foundation athletes from Merton Weightlifting Club will be in attendance at the Canons Open Day. They will be giving demonstrations of their weightlifting as well as giving anyone a chance to have a go with some special technique bars. This will be from 12.30 onwards on the MUGA pitches – let’s hope the sun is out!
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.
