Have an active half term with Sport Zone
Sport Zone, the council's popular holiday scheme, is back again this half term, offering eight to 13 year olds a great range of sports and fun activities.
The programme includes football, badminton, squash, short tennis, basketball, uni-hoc, and swimming.
Stephen Petheric, commercial manager for leisure@cheltenham says: "This is a great service offering real value to young people across the area; and feedback has been fantastic from both the parents and children who take part. Our team of professionals create a great opportunity for our children to experience and enjoy some fabulous sporting and leisure activities in a safe and supervised environment.
"Places are limited so it is really important to book your sessions as soon as possible ─ let us take the worry of childcare at half term."
Half days and full days are available during the week with registration starting at 8.30am each day. A full day ( 8.30am - 5.30pm ) is £16.50; a morning ( 8.30am - 1pm ) is £11; an afternoon ( 1pm - 5.30pm ) is £11; and a week pass is £55.20.
Children will need to bring comfortable clothing for sport, trainers (with non-marking soles), a packed lunch and their swim wear and towel. They will also need to bring their receipt to confirm their booking for the day.
Registration forms can be found at customer services at leisure@cheltenham, Tommy Taylors Lane, Cheltenham and must be completed before paying.
