MORE than 200 free sport and activity sessions will be held in Bristol parks over the summer holidays as part of a drive to get more people pursuing an active lifestyle.

The Kick Off and Play Ball sessions – which started on July 20 and are open to anyone aged 13-years-old and above – include street futsal, basketball, boot camps, table tennis, cricket and handball. There will also be female-only sessions.

Local venues include Montpelier Park and Albany Green in Montpelier.

The sessions are being held as part of Sport4life Bristol, a two-year project aimed at increasing participation in sport and activity, and creating life-long sporting habits in three key areas of Bristol:

Bishopston councillor and assistant mayor for neighbourhoods, Daniella Radice, said: “The summer holidays are a great opportunity to try out a new sport or to improve your skills. Playing sport not only boosts health and well-being, but is great way to enjoy the outdoors and make new friends too.

I’m sure many people across Bristol will make the most of these free sessions, Kick off and Play Ball this summer.”
