Commonwealth Games

LiveWire is inviting children and young people, ages 10-17 years, to go for gold and help the Warrington community celebrate the 2022 Commonwealth Games by joining in with a series of fun sporting activities and challenges.

The weekly sessions, made possible by Sport England as part of the Together Fund and partners Mad Runners, will be held at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub, Saturdays from 16th July to September.

From boxing, dodgeball and netball, to squash, athletics, bike rides and boxing, there’s something for every age and ability.

The project runs from 16th July at 12:30-3:30pm and costs just 50p.

The sessions include opportunities to win prizes, lots of incentives and visits from local sporting heroes.

Saturday 16th July events include:

12pm Sports Hall – pop-up tennis

12.30pm Fitbox studio – boxing

2pm Sports Hall – kinball

Participants can turn up and register at 12noon, our coaches will be ready to introduce activities.

Paul Flannery, Community Sports Development Manager, said: “Thanks to this funding we will be able to offer a fantastic menu of different sports every Saturday for young people in central Warrington. We will be giving young people the chance to try out a wide variety of sports in a safe environment.

“This is a great opportunity for young people to keep busy during the weekend period and use the inspiration of the commonwealth games to participate themselves!”
