Temple Park Centre Leisure Centre has opened its doors this August to a huge array of activities and facilities aimed at keeping people of all ages entertained.
The tropical leisure pool incorporates a wave machine, the 50m Aqua-Blaster slide, together with a learner pool and diving tank. Keen swimmers can enter the 'Swim 7' promotion with a chance to receive Virgin Megastore vouchers and enter into September's draw with a chance to win a whole host of fantastic prizes.
Swimming is only one of over 30 different week long Junior Sports Courses for children of all ages and abilities being held during the school holidays. Other sports include basketball, football, kwik cricket and trampolining. The ever-popular Junior Sportzone, Junior Bodywise and Junior Bodyshape sessions are back for another season and are excellent value for Leisurecard Members.
The Play Section of South Tyneside Council is hosting a series of Summer Playdays aimed at 5 to 14 year olds, which include a huge list of activities ranging from badge making to face painting.
Mums and dads are well catered for and the programme of summer events does not affect any of their activities and facilities which are offered all year round.
The Waterline Bar and Function Suite is family friendly and a perfect place to enjoy drinks and bar snacks. The fast food cafeteria offers a variety of boxed meals, jacket potatoes and sandwiches.
Copies of the summer events brochure are still available from all leisure centres, libraries and South Shields Town Hall or by ringing the Leisure Centre direct on: 456 9119.
