The Keepmoat Stadium will host an extravaganza of sporting fun to keep kids entertained during the May half term school holidays; through a joint venture with Doncaster Rovers Community Foundation.

The programme will encompass a wide variety of sports and other fun activities for boys and girls aged between 7-14, of any physical ability.

Youngsters will take part in various activities from the All Sports Week timetable which includes ten pin bowling, a mini football world cup, dodge ball, ice skating, army training with a real life sergeant, fencing and table tennis.

The scheme aims to enthuse and engage youngsters within the region in safe and exciting environments, encouraging group participation and living a healthy lifestyle.

Alternatively, it is £50 per week or £15 per day for parents wishing to collect their children between 3.30pm and 5pm.

Shane Chalmers, chief executive of the Stadium Management Company, who run the Keepmoat Stadium, said: “These sports programmes are always fantastic and this May promises to bring some of the best yet!”

Liam Scully, participation manager for the Doncaster Rovers Community Foundation explained: “Each year the school holiday activities on offer get bigger and better, with more exciting excursions and fun activities to get involved in. Each session will be delivered by our highly skilled team of coaches who are fully insured and CRB checked.
