Summer has arrived and what better than to be outside in the fresh air enjoying the sports we sometimes aren’t able to over the cold and rainy days.
Wimbledon is in full swing and it’s a great opportunity to motivate your children to try tennis. And the bonus with the sunny long days is that you don’t even need to worry about paying to take them to indoor classes and courts. Most parks have tennis courts free of use, so grab your racket and ball and make the most of the weather we have been lucky enough to have right now. It also makes for some great bonding time between you and your children! And if your child needs some encouragement to get tennis motivated why not get them watching Wimbledon on the television? Here is a link to the official website where you can see who is playing when so they can choose their favourite player to watch and follow how far they go through the competition! https://www.wimbledon.com
Not only is it the season of tennis but also, the womens football is proving to be a massive success. It is a great way of showing young girls they have just as much right to be striving at this sport as boys do, and it teaches them just how far sport has come and how it is still evolving to this day. Again the link below will give you all the information you need for this. Make sure you tune in to the final on Sunday 7th July to see the end result! http://www.thefa.com/womens-girls-football
The third sport of Summer is the Cricket of course! Cricket is perfect for summer fun, and keeping fun and active! Likewise the Cricket is being shown regularly on the television and you can find all the latest information on the link below. https://www.cricketworldcup.com
The mens England cricket team have just reached the semi finals of the cricket world cup, so we are definitely proving this is a sport the English thrive in. Get your children feeling truly patriotic by cheering our team on, and again, Cricket is a great family bonding activity to spend a Sunday afternoon playing!
So let’s take advantage of this weather and follow the example of our National teams and play some sport!
