Get Active in August

Posted: Monday 05th August

Freshney Place is inviting families and friends to Get Active this August with a number of fun, energetic events taking place in the centre during the month.  The free activities and classic games will be hosted in Market Square, near Starbucks from 1am to 3pm,  to encourage the community to have a go whilst honing their fitness skills.

The playful entertainment is designed to get the whole family on board and will kick off on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th with a surf simulator so, if you haven’t managed to get to the seaside yet this will be a chance to experience catching those big waves! Participants can test their balance and stamina as the board twists and tilts like a real life surfboard, (without the water), testing how long they can stay upright.

On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th, keen climbers can try out their moves on a gripping bouldering wall. Suitable for all ages and abilities, families will be able to race each other to the end, testing out their speed and strength. Finally on the last weekend of August a Golf Simulator will give budding golf pro’s a chance to score a hole in one!

During the events there will also be a selection of family friendly games such as a giant snakes and ladders, jumbo hi-tower, big 4 and table tennis, to help get everyone in the mood.

We hope to see you there! If you are planning on joining us, get involved by clicking “Attending” on our Facebook Event here!
