Getting ready for half term fun and activities in Tendring

Tuesday, 10 October, 2017

A whole week of fun and leisure activities for youngsters has been drawn up at sports centres and pools across Tendring for the coming half term.

An extensive programme of indoor and outdoor sessions has been organised by staff at sites run by Tendring District Council (TDC) in Brightlingsea, Clacton, Dovercourt, Harwich, Manningtree and Walton.

The activities include football, basketball, trampolining, tennis, netball, gymnastics, all day madness, soft play and cheerleading at Clacton Leisure Centre as well as pool fun, games and swimming courses.

There is a whole range of pool sessions organised for both Dovercourt Bay Lifestyles and Walton-on-the-Naze Lifestyles.

All Day Madness - with a range of games and activities – soccer stars, taster squash and cheerleading are all on offer at Harwich Sport Centre.

At Brightlingsea Sports Centre there are family racket sports, indoor football fun, children’s non-contact boxing, morning madness and bouncy castle.

Mick Skeels, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said the holiday programmes have been very popular for a number of years.

“It is all part of the Council’s efforts to promote healthier lifestyles and wellbeing amongst our residents,” he said.

“In most cases you only need to turn up at the right facility and register. Some of the more popular sessions have a limited capacity so it is always best to check and book in advance.”

Full details of the activities, venues, costs and timings are available from TDC’s centres and on TDC’s website,
