Leisure centres in Lichfield will be joining in the nation’s biggest sports day to celebrate the success of British athletes at the Rio Olympics.
The I Am Team GB celebration takes place from August 27 to 29 and will see Friary Grange Leisure Centre, King Edward VI Leisure Centre and Burntwood Leisure Centre offering free activities.
Sports on offer will include tennis, table tennis, badminton and squash. There will also be the chance to use the free synthetic football pitches and basketball courts. All activities are on a first come first served basis.
Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet member for leisure at Lichfield District Council, said: “The Rio Olympics have got the nation gripped and Team GB is doing an amazing job, making us all so proud.
“We’re delighted to be joining leisure centres and sports clubs up and down the country in putting on a range of free activities to celebrate Team GB’s successes.
“You can book on the day or just pop in to any of our leisure centres and decide what you want to do from all of the free activities on offer, including tennis, football and swimming. It’s a great way to try something new and to be a part of I Am Team GB.”
