Hi Everyone,
We have now got Social Tennis Sessions at Avenue Campus!! 🌳

Starting 2nd March

As we move into the spring, this is a great way to enjoy being outdoors ☀️

Wednesdays, 11am-1pm, you can drop in and out when you like.

You can either meet at the courts or alternatively meet coach Gabe and any other students outside Jubilee Sports Centre to take the short 5-10mins walk to Avenue Campus together.

I will wait outside Jubilee at 10:30am on Wednesday, and be leaving to walk to Avenue at 10:45.

Really looking forward to seeing some familiar and new faces. As always mixed abilities are welcome, all kit provided and let's enjoy ourselves and Be Active.

Playwaze - 22/12/2021

Hi Team!

We have a free swim technique session on this morning at 11am Jubilee pool, as well as on the 4th and 5th January.

Here are some more details for you,

Swim clinic is a free offering during the festive break with our ex competitive swimmer and swim coach.
If you would like to attend, we have three categories based on your skill.

Sessions are for 20 minutes.
Dates for the sessions and times are:
December 22nd, January 4th and 5th
Times: Learn 11am, Refine, 11:20, Master 11:40.

This is a class for beginners and non-swimmers a like. If you are not able to swim a length of the pool or are uncomfortable in water out of your depth this is the class for you.

This is a class for swimmers that can complete a length or more of the pool, that are happy swimming unaided out their depth. Perhaps you are looking to improve your technique or learn all of the strokes correctly?

This class will focus on refining technique and swimming more efficiently whilst working on stamina and endurance in more of a training/workout setting. Perfect for budding triathlete's or anyone wanting to take their swimming to a higher level.

To book onto a session, as well as see what other activities we're running, download Playwaze and follow Be Active community 😃

Those of you booked onto social badminton tonight at 18:00, Jubilee, looking forward to meeting you. Coach Gabe will be at reception to meet you.
