The event, sponsored once again by TTP in Melbourn, consists of different sports over a five day period – including gymnastics, tennis and basketball.

Centre manager Graham Johnson-Mack said: “These sports camps are always well attended, and the children really seem to enjoy themselves.

“We try and put a variety of activities to keep them active, as well as letting the children have time to let their hair down on the Friday with a pool party and disco.

“And who knows? We might even be coaching the medal hopefuls of the future!”
