Trainers include former Kent and Somerset cricketer, Ben Trott, Gillingham Academy coach, Darren Collins 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.’
