Ketley youngsters, aged between 8 and 16, are invited to take part in popular sports such as football, cricket, basketball and rounders, for free.

Young people can get stuck into the variety of sports this half term, thanks to a new partnership between Sanctuary Housing, Ketley Parish Council and youth sports charity StreetGames.

Exciting sports landing in half term

Young people who are interested in taking part in the ‘Doorstep Sports Clubs’ can come along to the StreetGames session every day between 1pm and 3pm on Monday 27 October until Thursday 30 October. The free sporting sessions are being rolled out at two multi use games areas (MUGA).

  • On Monday and Wednesday at Telford Millenium Community MUGA, TF1 5DJ
  • Tuesday and Thursday at Sandbrook MUGA, TF1 5BH.

StreetGames is an exciting project for local young people

David Churm, Sanctuary Housing’s coordinator at Telford Millenium Community, said: “All four sessions will encourage local residents to get involved in their favourite sports and engage with the local community. This is something Sanctuary is proud to be involved with.”

Cllr Anil Saini, chairman of Ketley Parish Council, added: “This is an exciting project for the local community. We are always looking for ways to reach local young people and encourage them to get involved in the place they call home and StreetGames is a fun way to do so.”
