VOLLEYBALL, tennis, basketball, badminton and cricket are just some of the sports being introduced to youngsters in Portishead.

New Saturday Sports sessions at Portishead Youth Centre allow children aged eight to 11 years to try out different activities in a relaxed environment.

Centre assistant manager Kim Dodd said: “Our research suggests that while Portishead has lots of Saturday sports for young people, many of them require long-term commitment.

“The young people we talked to told us they don’t want to play the same sport every week and would like something flexible. This is why we have come up with a range of activities available on a pay-and-play basis.

“This is a great opportunity for young people to get active while having lots of fun.”

Sessions costs £3.50. To find out more call 01275 842461.
