Zenith Trampolining Club in Potters Bar handed £10,000 to continue Olympic legacy
A trampolining club has been handed £10,000 to continue the Olympic legacy and increase sports participation among young people in Potters Bar.
Coaches at the Zenith Trampolining Club successfully applied for National Lottery funding through Sport England, which aims to increase and protect sports provision across the country.
The money will be used to buy a new trampoline and provide free sessions to young people aged between 11 and 18 at specific schools in the area.
Trampolining coach Carole Charters has been a 20-year volunteer at the club, which meets at the Furzefield Centre in Mutton Lane.
She hopes the cash will help increase the 100-strong membership and introduce some children to a sport they may never have otherwise taken part in.
She said: “It is absolutely fantastic – we were very pleased to receive the money and I want to thank Hertsmere Council for their help in filling out the lengthy application.
“Trampolining is a very exciting sport and one we want to share. It is very healthy – it’s good for your heart, your body, your lungs – and it is something different.”
Those interested in having a go at trampolining can contact Carole on 07956 251025 or visit the club’s website here.
