Sports centre offers indoor activities to beat the winter blues

A WINTER sports activities package is being promoted by West Somerset Council to encourage people of all ages and abilities to keep fit and active.
Residents can swap the seasonal chill of outdoor exercising for indoor games sessions which are currently underway in the West Somerset Sports and Leisure Centre, in Minehead.
The wide range of warm-up activities to beat the winter blues includes table tennis, football, table cricket, basketball, table hockey, goalball, badminton, polybat, boccia - a sport for the disabled similar to bowls, petanque or even French boules - and many others.
Leisure, culture and recreation portfolio holder, Councillor Neil Parbrook, said: “This is a really good opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to take part in a great range of indoor activities that will help keep them fit and enjoying themselves throughout the long winter months.
“People can play sports that are old favourites as well as having the chance to try some new ones.
“It is friendly and everybody will find the support they need to join in all the activities and enjoy them to the maximum.”
The sessions are held every Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm and cost £1.20 per person.
As well as catering for disabled people, the sessions are fully inclusive and everybody is welcome.
There is no need to book, people can just turn up, or for further information they can telephone Liz Stewart on 07921 231369.
