SPORTING EDGE CELEBRATES LOTTERY ANNIVERSARY

The Sporting Edge is set to join celebrations for the 10th Anniversary of the National Lottery by offering FREE fitness testing as well as access to courts and classes, on Saturday 6th November 2004.

Facilities at the Sporting Edge, the community sports centre based at Edge Hill?s Ormskirk Campus, were partly funded by The National Lottery through Sport England. Staff are keen to encourage people to subscribe to a healthier lifestyle with the offer of free health related fitness testing for over 16s between 11am and 4pm on the 6th November.

The tests are simple and provide a guide to basic fitness levels with the offer of advice on improvement.

Fitness Co-ordinator for The Sporting Edge, Rob Stewart said: “National Lottery funding has helped to provide some fabulous facilities for the whole community. This is an ideal opportunity for people to visit the Sporting Edge and check them out. The fitness tests are very simple and you will be guided through them by friendly, helpful staff who can help you start an exercise regime that works for you.”

There will also be 2 FREE exercise classes during the afternoon and FREE badminton courts available throughout the day.
