Get set for Easter Sports Academy
Local children can hone their skills in cricket, football, hockey and tennis at the University of Kent this Easter.
The University of Kent Sport is running an Easter Sports Academy for children aged 7-14 to gain professional coaching in the four sports. It consists of three days of coaching in a chosen sport, and a trip to a stadium. The Academy runs from 9am - 3pm daily from 14 - 17 April at a cost of £80. Later pick-ups (until 5.30pm) are available for an extra £10 per day.
Trainers include former Kent and Somerset cricketer, Ben Trott, Gillingham Academy coach, and double Olympian hockey player, Mel Clewlow.
Mel Clewlow, the University’s Sports Development Manager, comments: ‘The classes are a great opportunity for children to gain some skills in their favourite sport as well as keep fit during the Easter holidays.’
To book a place, download a booking form from www.kent.ac.uk/sports and return it with payment to the University of Kent Sports Centre, Canterbury, Kent CT2 7NL. To find out more about the Academy, contact Mel Clewlow, email@example.com or 01227 827673.

Personal training available at Kent Sport
We all need a little motivation to exercise sometimes, whether we’re just starting out or we’ve been at it for a long time. Kent Sport now offers 1-2-1 training with a qualified trainer who can develop a bespoke exercise programme to help clients achieve their goals.
So how could a Kent Sport personal trainer benefit you? A personal trainer can assess exactly how you should exercise, plan how often you should exercise, and at what intensity level. Simply going outside and running may not be the best solution.
So if you would like to improve your stress levels, physique and appearance, manage your weight, enhance your flexibility and injury recovery, boost your fitness levels and performance in sport and improve your lifestyle habits and overall wellbeing, Kent Sport can help.
Visit www.kent.ac.uk/sports for prices and further information or call 01227 823623 to enquire about assistance with your fitness goals. For Kent Sport news, events and special offers, Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (UniKentSports).
