SPORTY youngsters have been enjoying some holiday fun thanks to a three-day cricket course organised by the Warwickshire Race Equality Partnership (WREP) in partnership with Rugby Borough Council.
The course for 8-16 year olds has been a resounding success and has attracted many young people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.
Benji Evans, WREP’s BME Sport and Active Recreation Officer, said: “It is great to be able to work in partnership with Rugby Borough Council to deliver a free cricket course for the local community.
“Both organisations have worked hard to ensure the current economic climate does not restrict access to sport for those in the Rugby area, especially young people. WREP are expanding the BME sports project across Warwickshire and the main aim is to increase participation in sport for people of all ages and races.”
WREP Manager, Junaid Hussain, added: “These types of activities are important for young people, as the positive relationships developed through sports will have a lasting impact for many years to come.”
