BasketballYoung people are being given the chance to have a go at Target Shooting, Basketball and Badminton thanks to National Lottery funding.

Active Nation’s Yarborough Leisure Centre in Lincoln has joined forces with the Active Lincolnshire to secure funding for the brilliant Sportivate courses launching at the venue this October.

Sportivate is a £56 million Lottery funded London 2012 legacy project that gives more young people the chance to discover a sport that they love.

11-25 year olds will be able to sign up paying £8 for each of the 8 week courses. All activities will be run by fully qualified instructors.

Active Nation’s Donna Taylor said: “We’re really looking forward to running these courses. They are a great way for young people to get active and try something new.”

Target Shooting launched on Friday October 2nd from 6.30pm-7.30pm, Basketball will run on Saturday mornings from October 3rd from 8.30am-10.30am and Badminton will start on Wednesday October 7th from 5pm-6pm.

None of the sessions require any previous experience and promise to be great fun.

Spaces are limited so please email Donna.Taylor@activenation.org.uk or call 01522 873606 to book a space.
