Children and teenagers are guaranteed to be kept active and entertained this summer by taking part in the many activities at One Leisure sites in Huntingdon, Ramsey, Sawtry, St Ives or St Neots and other venues across the district.

‘Summer Fun 2016’ is the comprehensive guide to sport and leisure activities that provide something for all ages, abilities and interests.

For those inspired by the Olympics, you will find the widest range of sports tasters where you can try something completely new or improve your existing skills. You can:

  • become an athlete by practising your running, jumping and throwing
  • learn new sports such as handball or volleyball
  • dribble and shoot in basketball
  • develop your bow and arrow skills with archery
  • show off style and grace with synchronised swimming or
  • bounce high on the trampoline.

There are also activity roadshows which will take place in villages throughout the district. These will give boys and girls aged 5 to 11 years the opportunity to try a variety of sports and play activities in a safe and supervised environment.

It doesn’t always have to take lots of effort as there are many creative and leisure activities, such as making bread and cakes from scratch, learning basic first aid skills, designing your own jewellery, trying out exciting science experiments or becoming your own superhero.

The Burgess Hall has the worldwide hit TV show LazyTown performing their brand new show live on stage, which is packed with singing, dancing, spectacular acrobatics, music and fun. For budding actors and actresses there are full day drama workshops where you will star in your very own fairytale or Shakespeare play.

Activities are not exclusively for children - there is plenty that families can enjoy together. Basement Lanes in St Ives has plenty of special offers in the school holidays which make tenpin bowling a great day out. The most popular family activity is still swimming and with even more daytime activities available and a choice of five swimming pools, you will be spoilt for choice.

For younger children, there are Leo’s Funzone soft play centres in Huntingdon and St Neots which provide the ideal place for kids to exercise and have fun through play. There are multi-levels packed with climbing walls, ball pools, slides, spinning panels and swings. Adults can then relax in the cafe while watching their children play in a safe environment.
