Booking lines are now open for parents to book their children in for a fun filled summer.

The sport and play development teams at Cheltenham Borough Council are once again planning an action packed programme for youngsters with a wide range of playschemes, activity days and sports sessions. 

PlayZone playschemes will operate from Balcarras School and Rowanfield Infant School for children aged 6 - 12. The Balcarras scheme offers parents the opportunity to book in advance to secure a place, whereas the shorter Rowanfield scheme will operate on a first come, drop in basis.

A range of action days have also been planned including trips to South Cerney Water Park, the Battlesports Laser Tag arena, and a series of pony days.

The summer of sport programme will see a wide range of sports sessions and coaching courses on offer including basketball, badminton, cricket, street dance, athletics, water polo and many more.

Craig Mortiboys, healthy communities partnership manager said: "This year's summer programme is more varied than ever before, and hopefully there is something to keep everyone busy and entertained. I would encourage people to book early to avoid disappointment."

The summer holiday programme runs from 25 July until 26 August and booking lines are now open.
