Come and try some sport �– there’s a lot to go round!

WENHASTON is holding its first sports day, which takes place on Saturday, September 4.

Young people in the area are being encouraged to take part, whether they have hopes of becoming the next Wayne Rooney or Andy Murray or just enjoy playing for fun, want to learn a new game, or start getting active.

They can try a whole host of activities as part of a healthy-living initiative run by Wenhaston Sports Club.

Five-a-side-football, tennis, BMX biking, bowls and egg and spoon races are among the events planned.

There will be competitions and trophies for the winners, but the main emphasis is on youngsters of all abilities taking part and enjoying some exercise at the event.

There will also be events for adults, including a tennis tournament for all abilities.

The sports day will take place at the local tennis courts and playing field from 11am-4pm, and is being supervised by adults to ensure the safety of children attending.
