Allscott Heath Sports and Social Club already has a vibrant community of people taking part in activities. It currently has 11 Crown Green Bowls teams, 9 football teams, 5 cricket teams, an archery club, a snooker team and a golf society.
Tim Clare, Allscott Heath Sports and Social Club spokesman, said: “People can be reluctant to just turn up at a club for the first time and try to take part. We are opening our doors to give people the chance to try something and see what we are about.
“Anyone who attends will be given free social membership to the club for the remainder of the year. This gives them access to the social club and its games, including 10% discount on purchases at the bar.
“We hope to see families there, as well as groups of friends who are looking for an opportunity to pick up an activity.
“The club already has lots of people who have discovered a love for activity at our club. We want more people to come down and enjoy what we have on offer.”
The event has been organised thanks to £1,000 grant from Telford and Wrekin Council as part of the Let's Get Telford Active campaign.
The council funding has been used to hire coaches and instructors for activities and to enable the club to do more for its local community.
Andy Burford, Cabinet Member for health and social care, said: “Having fun and the right support are so important when it comes to being active. We’re lucky to have many passionate people in our communities like Allscott Heath Sports Club helping to create these events and providing places where people can go to play their sports.
“Places all over Telford and Wrekin, from villages to bigger towns will have new events springing up where people can get together and hopefully find something they love.”
