Melbourn Sports Centre hosted its annual Summer Sports Camp week, in which more than 30 children per day, aged five to 13, had the opportunity to take part in a variety of Olympic-themed activities.
The event, sponsored once again by TTP Group Melbourn, consists of eight different sports over a five day period, including gymnastics, tennis and basketball.
Each sport has been overseen by qualified coaches, who made sure that the participants were put through their paces in a fun and safe environment.
Graham Johnson-Mack, manager of the centre, said: “This year, perhaps because of the Olympics, we’ve really seen a surge in efforts to acquire the skills of different activities.
“And who knows? We might even be coaching the medal hopefuls of the future.”
