Park Sport to reduce screen time and turn up the fun this summer!
The Borough’s popular annual Park Sport programme will take place over August 2022 to help children and young people tackle screen time and have fun this summer.
Park Sport is funded by Eastleigh Borough Council’s SportWorks, as well as the Local Area Committees, Parish and Town Councils, and supported by a broad range of partners including sports clubs, activity providers and venues. This has enabled activities to be subsidised at £2.50 (concessions available) or completely free for families based in Eastleigh Borough.
The programme will run from 1 to 26 August during the school summer holidays for five-16-year-olds. It sees the return of free popular activities, such as the free SkateJams and Free Swimming, as well as the new Orienteering events and routes, at multiple locations across the Borough.
Introductory Sessions, from more familiar golf to archery and new Dodgeball to Aerial Hoop will enable young people to try something different, with options to continue at local clubs and providers.
Sessions require pre-bookings with staggered release dates, and the swimming requires pre-registration – these will open from Monday 4 July, 1pm.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Councillor Tonia Craig, said: “We are committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of all our community which is why we are proud to have Park Sport again this year. These subsidised activities help children and young people reduce screen time and try new ways to have fun and keep moving during the summer.”
