Free activities on offer at Leisure World Tiptree

Date issued: 14 February 2018

On Sunday 4 March, Leisure World Tiptree is throwing open its doors for people of all ages and fitness levels to come and try something new for free.

Taster sessions at the centre's Open Day, running 1pm-5pm, offer a chance to try our climbing, football, badminton, squash and table tennis. Staff will be on hand to answer questions and give tips, while the sports hall will be transformed into a kids' paradise for the day, with bouncy castles, soft play, bikes and trikes and other exciting play equipment.

Cllr Annie Feltham, Colchester Borough Council Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services, said: "The variety of activities offered to the community at Leisure World Tiptree is astounding and we're excited to showcase them to residents - free of charge! Regular exercise should be accessible for everyone. I hope the Open Day encourages lots of people to try something different and perhaps even find a new passion."

Members of the centre, based at Thurstable School, Maypole Road, Tiptree, enjoy unlimited access to the site's well-equipped gym, fitness classes and free parking - all for just £16.99 per month with a 12-month membership. Opening hours are 4.30-10pm Monday to Friday, perfect for those who want to train after the busy work of the weekdays is done, and 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
