Summer camps to keep youngsters active and entertained

We love our football at Melton Sports and will be glued to the World Cup but summer is a time to have a break from the ‘beautiful game’ and try other sports.

And with the holidays upon us we thought parents might like a taste of what is on offer to keep youngsters active and entertained.

The following is not a comprehensive listing so we will post details of anything else we come across on our Facebook page as well as the pre-season open days held by the likes of Melton Rugby Club and Melton Hockey Club.

In the meantime you can sure that whatever your sporting needs we can help with everything from cricket, badminton, tennis and table tennis sets to trainers and flip flops, sunglasses and Speedos!
