Fantastic chance to try out sports

March 27 2019

SPORTS volunteers in the area are giving members of the public the chance to try a new sport or club as part of a free open day later this month.

The Frenchay Sports Joint Open Day on April 14 will see a range of clubs come together so visitors will have the chance to try various sports and ask volunteers from the clubs questions. There will also be a fun run for people of all ages.
Taking part are:
• Frenchay Cricket Club
• Downend and Frenchay Tennis Club
• Bristol Golf Centre
• Dings Crusaders RFC
• Just Jog, an independent women's running group
• Gary Harris Cycles, an independent bike shop
• Rockleaze Rangers FC
Many of the sessions will take place at Frenchay Cricket Club's ground in Common Mead Lane, Hambrook with further action next door at Bristol Golf Club and at nearby Rockleaze Rangers' home ground at Hillside Gardens.
During the event Dings Crusaders RFC will throw open the doors of their new home in Shaftesbury Park so members of the public can look around their new facilities.
The event follows the success of the inaugural joint open day in 2017.
One of the organisers, Penny White, from Downend and Frenchay Tennis Club, said: “The aim is to showcase the sports clubs available in the area and to try to encourage local people to participate in sports on their doorstep.”
Refreshments are available at Frenchay Cricket Club, Downend and Frenchay Tennis Club and Bristol Golf Centre.
Frenchay Sports Joint Open Day runs from 10am-4pm at Frenchay Cricket Club, Common Mead Lane, Hambrook, BS16 1QQ.
