Getin2it this summer

A host of activities are on offer through the Getin2it programme.
Getin2it runs from Monday 25 July to Friday 2 September

With the school summer holidays just days away an exciting schedule of sporting activities has been arranged to keep children and young people across the district entertained.

Lichfield District Council’s Active Lichfield team has launched its Getin2it Summer Holiday 2022 programme, which is packed full of sessions including tennis, boxing and football.

These, together with Soft Archery, multi sports and Spikeball (a net sport where a ball is served to a round net set above the floor), are free to enjoy and will take place at venues in the district including Beacon Park, Burntwood Leisure Centre, Burntwood Park and Chase Terrace Park.

The programme kicks-off on Monday 25 July with fun for children of all ages at Play in the Park, delivered by Burntwood Town Council, at Chase Terrace Park from 11am to 3pm.

There are also Panna Football sessions for 7-11 and 12-16 year-olds, Glow Sport for 7-14 year-olds and Parkour for 16-25 year-olds. The maximum charge for these is £2 per session.

A series of Dodgeball sessions are also scheduled most of which are free.

As part of the Getin2it summer offer, from Monday July 18, SPACE leisure passes will be available from either Burntwood Leisure Centre or Friary Grange Leisure Centre.

In partnership with Freedom Leisure and funded by the Staffordshire Police Commissioner’s SPACE summer activity scheme we are excited to be able to offer 160 free passes on a first-come first-served basis to young people across the district.

This will give them free access to off-peak swimming and court hire at Burntwood Leisure Centre and Friary Grange Leisure Centre Leisure centre and to the paid sessions in the Getin2it summer programme.

The passes also offer discounted activities in both leisure centres for 12 months after the summer holidays.

Once all 160 free passes have been allocated passes will be available to purchase.

Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Andy Smith, said:

“Getin2it offers a variety of great activities over the summer holiday period.

“They will keep young people active and occupied and we hope many from across the district will attend.

“There is no need to book to participate in any of the sessions over the six weeks - just come along and join in.”
