An active summer of physical activity and sport!

Summer always promises to be a massive season for sport and physical activity, and 2017 is no different! We've already had World Cup glory for England in the Football, and cricket has taken charge as the Champions Trophy and Women's World Cup came to Britain. Add to that the magic of Wimbledon, the excitement of the Lions tour and the Athletics World Championships in London, and it promises to be a thrilling few months!

Do you find it hard to prioritise physical activity? Doing just 10 minutes has its benefits! Current UK guidelines advise adults to accumulate 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) per week and children 60 minutes per day, and this summer there are lots of opportunities to help you with that.

There are a number of fantastic campaigns and programmes taking place over the summer months, aiming to inspire you into active action!

Local districts and boroughs, as well as a number of other providers across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland, are offering a range of exciting activities, sessions, camps, courses and clubs, to keep everyone active over the summer holiday. Please see the below information, which we are constantly adding to.
