Community Open Day at Lilleshall Sports Centre to provide free family fun

Community Open Day at Lilleshall Sports Centre to provide free family fun
Lilleshall Sports Centre will hold an open day for the community to use their facilities and try a variety of activities for free on the 18th of July 2015.

Anyone can attend and sample a range of new activities, including: rush hockey, yoga, bubble football, and various garden games, such as giant Jenga, giant connect four, croquet, quoits and many more.

If that doesn’t whet your appetite, why not come and give the 10km mud-run a go? There will also be a 5km mud-run for the kids to get involved with, guaranteed to be muddy good fun for all the family!

Steven Shuttlewood, Sport and Community Development Co-ordinator at Lilleshall, commented: "The aim of our open day is to give the local community a day packed with fun activities for both adults and children and to keep them active at the same time. It will also hopefully give people an idea of what Lilleshall has to offer, as anyone can come on-site to use our facilities, not just elite athletes!"

So whether you're a curious first-timer or a seasoned professional, Lilleshall encourages you to come down and try out a new activity, who knows, you might just surprise yourself.

For those of you that appreciate the quieter things in life, you can use this opportunity to take a stroll through the acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, which frequently provide those ever-cherished memories and photographs for weddings and special occasions.

Other attractions on the day include: an ice cream van, inflatables, a sweets stall and a face painting stand.

The Community Open Day will officially start at 09:00pm and conclude at 3:00pm. There's no need to sign up, just turn up on the day and try a range of activities for free, although a modest charge will apply for some of the activities.
