Sports fair to show off best clubs in area

THE local sporting community will come together on Saturday for the Scarborough and Filey Community Sports Fair.

The event, which takes place at Scarborough Sports Centre from 2pm to 4pm, has been awarded the prestigious London 2012 Inspired award.

Matt Hewison, Scarborough Council’s sports development officer, said: “The Scarborough and Filey event should be really exciting, with many of the local pro-active clubs attending including Scarborough Rugby Union FC, the Sports Centre Health and Fun Club, Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club, Scarborough Rowing Club, Scarborough Table Tennis Centre, Hackness Tennis Club, Scarborough Athletic FC and the three swimming clubs.

“There will also be demonstrations and displays given by a number of clubs that people can get involved with. All the clubs are attending to raise awareness of their sport and clubs and inform people how they can become involved.”

Mr Hewison added: “The event is an excellent opportunity for community members to come along and find out more about local sports participation and volunteering aspects.”

As part of the fair a free prize draw has been put together for anyone who attends the event.
