The City of Wolverhampton Council's Summer of Sport starts on Monday 23 July and continues until Friday 31 August across all 3 leisure centres, WV Active Aldersley, WV Active Central and WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams.

Free activities on offer include badminton, tennis, squash, table tennis, family swimming lessons and fitness classes, and can be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages.

Those who want to take advantage of the offer must be residents of Wolverhampton and will need to register for temporary Summer of Sport membership for free via the WV Active website.

Councillor Steve Evans, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Environment, said: "We are delighted to be offering a wide range of free activities for local residents of all ages during the school holidays, and I'd encourage people to sign up for their Summer of Sport today."

The Summer of Sport programme is being supported with funding from the council's Public Health service.

Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Hazel Malcolm, said: "It is important that as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy sport and exercise, and by offering a wide range of free sessions at our leisure centres from 23 July to 31 August we hope that even more residents will be able to enjoy a fit and active summer.

"This ties in well with our Type=links;Linkid=10743;Title=Vision for Public Health;Target=_blank;, whereby we create the right sort of environment in which people are better able to look after their own health and wellbeing."
