Improving health and fitness shouldn’t just be a New Year’s Resolution which is why Sport Eastbourne is encouraging people to get ahead of the game and run into 2017 as a new version of themselves. With 3 sports centres and a sports park to choose from, discovering a new talent, competing against friends in a match or working on beating personal targets has never been easier.
With Team GB’s golden success in the Rio 2016 Olympics, there is more motivation than ever to follow in the footsteps of local sporting heroes such as Johanna Konta. With over 50 exercise classes to choose from and 4 locations, there is an athlete waiting to be unleashed in everybody.
Classes like ‘Clubbercise’ offer a fun dance workout with glow sticks and disco lights, while more traditional Kickboxing and Circuit Training are also available. Popular Spinning classes run at Hampden Park Sports Centres 4 times a week with brand new high powered indoor bikes to cycle along to the latest tunes on.
Sport Eastbourne’s extensive facilities can be found at Shinewater, Hampden Park and Cavendish Sports Centres. All centres offer gym facilities as well as unique classes like singalong exercise class ‘Swoove’ or challenging ‘Insanity’ classes. Eastbourne Sports Park includes a state of the art Athletics Track, 3G Pitch and a large arena Sports Hall with LTA accredited tennis centre.
Eastbourne Borough Council Director of Tourism and Enterprise, Phil Evans said “Sport Eastbourne offers a brilliant service which is great value for money. With their unique classes and facilities, there’s a reason for everybody to get active.”
Whatever the member’s ability or age, from 3 to 83, Sport Eastbourne has an activity to boost fitness levels. Shinewater Sports Centre specialises in over 50’s activities, with walking netball, pickle ball, table tennis and badminton amongst the variety of sports on offer.
Little athletes can try Mini Tennis, Track Active and Run 4 Fun, as well as enjoying friendly tournaments in Little Tekkers Football at Hampden Park Sports Centre. During Easter and Summer Holidays children can get stuck into football, athletic and tennis camps.
Engaging in a game of five aside football and badminton is a brilliant way to keep motivated whilst socialising. Competitive sports like squash, netball and table tennis are also available.
Not only can visitors expect friendly faces working at the centres, but straight-forward and great value payment plans will put a smile on their face too. With Pay As You Go, monthly and annual memberships, enjoying a new hobby won’t break the bank.
Dance studios and Sport Halls can be booked out by activity instructors. Sport Eastbourne also offers a venue hire service which specialises in Kids Parties, including NERF or bouncy castle parties.
As an alternative to paying high costs for child care, Sport Eastbourne’s Centres offers Play Schemes at their three venues. For children aged 4 to 12, prices start at just £5 for a morning session throughout the school holidays. The play schemes are OFSTED registered.
