Inspire Fest - Inclusive sports taster day



09/03/2017 - 9.30 - 1.30 @ Bath Sports and Leisure Centre

There will be activities for everyone to try in the newly refurbished sports hall at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre. This will give you the opportunity to see if you like a sport and get some tips from trained leaders. We will have boccia, rugby with Bath Rugby Foundation, Adaptive Martial Arts and inclusive Tennis. There will also be a British Sign Language interpreter, a chill out room, refreshments, goody bags and information about local opportunities to get active. Come along and give it a go! Be one of the first people to use the newly refurbished Bath Sports and Leisure Centre sports hall. The Leisure Centre is currently undergoing major refurbishment and the sports hall is now complete. One new addition is the new boccia court. Boccia is a fully inclusive precision sport of tactic and skill involves propelling balls to a target ball from a seated position. Sounds simple? It is to get started, but the tactics of the sport offer both tension and excitement as the game plays out. Being active is a great way to improve your health and wellbeing. The hardest part can be trying a new activity for the first time so we have organised this friendly, free event for you and people you support to come along and try an activity with no pressure and plenty of help.
