Family fun day to mark opening of Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre today
6:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
Truro School will be marking the opening of the brand new Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre on Saturday with a free family open day.
During the event which runs from 10am – 4pm, there will be free sports taster sessions, including swimming, badminton, activities in the fitness suite, dance studio sessions, and much more including free refreshments and goodies.
The Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre will be the largest sports centre in Truro, boasting an extensive range of facilities such as an eight court badminton centre - one of the largest in Cornwall; two county standard and glass-backed squash courts with viewing gallery; a large fitness suite with state-of-the-art equipment; sprung wooden floor dance and exercise studio; five changing rooms and class room facilities.
The new centre also complements the top quality existing facilities that range from the outdoor grass pitches, tennis court and astro turf to the 25 metre indoor swimming pool.
Andrew Gordon-Brown, headmaster of Truro School, said: “Our aim is to provide an excellent facility to inspire the next generation of athletes from within our school, following on from the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games that Sir Ben Ainslie was such an iconic part of.”
"Families from across the county are invited to visit the brand new centre to try out some of the free sport taster sessions at the open event, with people of all ages and abilities getting involved and enjoying all of the new facilities on offer.
"Truro School hope their new facilities will provide an opportunity for young talent to grow in Cornwall with the prospects of succeeding not only on a regional level but also on a national platform."
The formal grand opening ceremony for the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre will take place later this year on October 23, and will be opened by Sir Ben Ainslie himself.
