The Summer Sports Camp, funded by Breckland Council, encourages children aged five to 11 to get involved with something new from July 29 until August 30.

Delivered by professional coaches from Aspire PE, the programme offers sports including dodgeball, rounders and several new adaptive sports such as pop lacrosse, boccia and Quidditch.

Running from Monday to Friday in the morning (10am-12pm) or afternoon (1pm-3pm), each session costs £3 and venues include Watton, Bawdeswell, Attleborough and Garboldisham. Booking is not required.

Mark Robinson, Breckland's executive member for community, leisure and culture, said: "The Summer Sports Camp sessions provide a wonderful opportunity for young people to have fun, meet new friends and learn a new activity.
