Children and young people can try sports with Paralympic medallist
Paralympic medallist Ben Rushgrove is joining Bath & North East Somerset to inspire children and young people to try new sports and get active.
Ben Rushgrove, who won Silver in the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and Bronze at London 2012, will visit youngsters taking part in the Council's Inclusive After School Sports Club at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre on Monday 26 November.
The club runs on Mondays from 4pm-5pm and provides multi-sport opportunities for young people from 7-18 years old. The club is open to all and welcomes anyone regardless of their ability.
Councillor David Dixon (Lib-Dem, Oldfield), said: "We're delighted to welcome Ben to the After School Sports Club, especially after his inspirational success this summer at London 2012. Bath & North East Somerset Council is encouraging children and young people to come along to these inclusive clubs – which are open to all abilities – as we want to give everyone the opportunity to take part in sport and leisure activities, and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

"Previous activities have included tag rugby, hockey, basketball, football, badminton, adapted cycling and open swimming. We're always interested to provide new sports so please come along and tell us what you would like to try."
Highly skilled and professional coaches from Bath Rugby Foundation offer fun and informal sport that can be adapted to ensure everyone feels part of the activity and contributes to the team. The club allows young people to make new friends and develop confidence and skills which benefit their overall independence.
Ben Rushgrove, who is also a patron of Bath & North East Somerset Inclusive Sport & Physical Activity Association, said: "After a great summer of sport I feel it is important to build on that momentum and getting young people to try something new or to continue being inspired by sport is so important."
The Inclusive After School Sports Club runs on a term-time basis every Monday from 4pm-5pm at Bath Sports and Leisure Centre. Come along and try your first session for free before 10 December 2012 and if you like it, you can come back and get active in the New Year! The next course runs from 14 January to 18 March 2013 and costs £36.00.
