"City in the Park" is coming your way next month. City in the Community will be providing a wide range of sports and activities in a park near you this summer, completely free.
The project, which is funded by the Premier League/PFA Community Fund and supported by Sport England and Manchester City Council, is geared to providing young people with the chance to experience new sports in their own neighbourhood.
Sports will include:
All these non-traditional sports will be played alongside mainstream sports such as football, cricket and basketball. There will also be arts & crafts, dance and much more available.
"City in the Park" is aimed at eight- to 13-year-olds, the only requirement being that a consent form is completed by a parent or guardian. The project is open access, so booking is not required. Consent forms will be available on the day or can be posted upon request.
