BANBIRDGE District Council is now taking bookings for sports courses available to young people in different parts of the district as part of this year’s Summer Activity Programme.

Courses in multi-sports, dance, table tennis and angling will commence the first week in July with many more to follow later in July and August.

Two courses, multi-sports and dance, will be held at Fairhill Primary School in Kinallen for children aged 5 to 12 from Monday 2 July until Friday 6 July. The multi sports course will run from 10am to 12pm each day followed by the dance course from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

These two courses have been organised by the Council in conjunction with Banbridge District Sports Association and the Sport NI Lottery Funded initiative, Active Communities.
