Activities include badminton, table tennis and squash and the day runs from 9.30am until noon. The morning starts with sports coaching, if required, followed by an aerobics class and complementary refreshments. Booking is required for the aerobics class but not for the morning. Equipment is provided.

All the sessions are sociable, so are a great way to meet and get to know new people while playing sports.
