Residents of Bulwell are being offered the chance to try a wide range of sports -- for FREE!

It’s all part of a new initiative launched by Nottingham City Council.

Anyone can sample sports at locations and clubs across the city, including Bulwell.

The sports range from hockey and korfball to BMX and orienteering.

And the sessions are suitable for those with previous experience or complete beginners.

Newcomers will get their first session for free, giving them the chance to visit a local club, meet other members and gain a basic understanding of the sport to see if it’s something they would like to take up.

The campaign is part of the Game On Legacy Programme, which aims to build on the success of the 2012 Olympic Games in London and get more Bulwell people more active more often.

Coun Dave Trimble (Lab), the council’s portfolio holder for leisure, culture and tourism, said: “We are committed to building on the success of the London 2012 Games.

“Joining a club or having to pay membership fees up front can be off-putting, so we are working in partnership with clubs to make them more accessible.

“Young people in particular can benefit hugely from the focus and discipline that taking up a sport can provide.

“Whether it’s basketball or tennis, netball or volleyball, there is a huge choice of activities to try. I would urge Bulwell citizens to check out what’s on offer.”
