Turn up and play: Free sporting activities for children this half term

Salisbury City Council’s Community Leaders are taking sports on tour this February half-term.

Continuing with their commitment to making sport accessible for all, Salisbury City Council will be running free multi-sport sessions at three locations around the city for children aged 7-14.

The sessions, at Bemerton, Harnham and Churchill Gardens, will run from 1-4pm and enable participants to experience a range of sports including Football, Hockey, Basketball, Cricket, Tchoukball and more.

There is no need to book, just turn and play.

A spokesperson for Salisbury City Council said, “It is important to us that this is a fun opportunity to socialise and try new things and we welcome as many young people as possible. Do get in touch with us if you have any access needs and we are happy to talk about how you can take part.”

If you’d like any further information, contact the Community Activity Leaders at the Bemerton Heath Centre on 01722 417100, or alternatively email bhc@salisburycitycouncil.gov.uk

Each participant will need to complete a consent form with emergency contact details. Session length is subject to change and weather dependent.
