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.”

Full details about future events to be held at Melbourn Sports centre, such as the sports pentathlon, can be found at the website or by calling 01763 263313.
