New course to sharpen sport skills

SPORTS enthusiasts have the chance to sharpen their skills on a new course in Westergate.

The Six Villages Sports Centre is starting weekly Swing by Softball sessions from tonight. They aim to offer an introduction to softball and baseball with a focus on fun and exercise.

Following a successful pilot programme in January, the nights, operated by Freedom Leisure, were given Sportivate funding from Active Sussex.

They are being run with BaseballSoftballUK and will be led by qualified coaches to pass on their experience.

Sports development manager Richard Bagwell said: “Whatever your experience, Swing by Softball is a great way to pick up skills, get fit and have fun, without the pressure of committing to team training nights and match fixtures.”

The sessions will be held from 7pm – 8pm and will run at the same time for eight weeks at a cost of £2.50 a person.
