It looks like Melbourn is set to produce some elite athletes of the future after more than 100 people turned up to an annual summer camp in the village.
The event, sponsored by TTP Group Melbourn, consisted of a variety of sports over a five day period at Melbourn Sports Centre, including gymnastics, tennis and basketball.
Manager Graham Johnson-Mack said: “These sports camps are always well attended, but this year more than ever, with more than 100 children attending throughout the week.
“We’ve really seen a surge in efforts to acquire the skills of different activities. And who knows? We might even be coaching the stars of the future.”
There are still plenty of opportunities for budding athletes to get involved in summer sports in Melbourn, including play schemes and Summer Pentathlon, and on term bookings on activities such as swimming, trampoline and tennis.
