Somersham Carnival Week kicked off on Saturday 16th with ‘Sport For All’ – a day of sporting and fitness activity taster sessions. Ed Procter and a number of sports coaches were on hand to introduce, encourage and teach people a range of new activities as diverse as Zumba, Tang Soo Do, Archery, Table tennis, and a Wheelchair Sport Challenge.
Here’s a selection of photos from the day – check back, as we’ll update it with more pics soon.
Ever wondered what Zumba or Tang Soo Do are? Do you want to try Squash, Netball or Archery?
Well, now’s your chance, as Ed Procter brings ‘Sports For All’ to this year’s Somersham Carnival with a day of taster sessions on Saturday 16th June in venues across Somersham. You never know, you could end up ‘Going For Gold’ in your new-found sport at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil!
Other sporting taster sessions include Tennis, Badminton, Table Tennis, Skatepark skills, Wheelchair challengers, Cricket, Tag Rugby, Disco Dancing, Bowls and more!
Starting from 8am and lasting until 4pm, you can join Ed and a host of other sports and fitness coaches in taster sessions, costing just £1 per sport or £2.50 for a day ticketto access all sports (family discounts available).
There’s also a 2km Family Fun Run with medals for winners in each age group – race numbers available in Somersham schools or the library (or contact Ed Procter on 01487 841021).
Sporting champions will also be available to share the secrets of their success.
Plus, for £1 you can create your own Olympic-style torch (no real flames though!) for you to use in the Carnival Day Parade on 23rd June. Crafts are kindly organised by the First Step Playgroup in the Scout Hut.
*The organisers reserve the right to alter the sporting activities, time or locations where necessary at short notice. Please check on the day to avoid any inconvenience.
