Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has unveiled its best ever Summer Recreation Programme.  

For the first time, activities will take place in venues right across the Borough.

Developed by Council’s Sport & Wellbeing Development Unit, the programme runs from Monday 2nd July until Friday 17th August.  Participants now have more choice than ever before with 59 courses covering 28 different activity options and 10 summer activity schemes.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “Council is delighted to introduce a Borough-wide Summer Recreation Programme for the first time which gives our residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy fantastic fun activities from Ballycastle to Ballymoney and Coleraine to Limavady.  I would encourage all young people to take part in the programme and enjoy the many benefits associated with getting active.” 

Sports Development Manager (Central), Stephen McCartney added: “I’m really excited about the scale and variety of courses and schemes on offer this year.  Council's Sports Development Team is committed to offering quality activities which are reflective of the specific needs within our communities. This year’s programme demonstrates an innovative approach to sport and activity delivery. Our courses and schemes are developed with young people in mind and offer exceptional coaching and supervision with lots of emphasis on having fun.”

Enrolment for all courses begins on Saturday 2nd June at 8.30am in Coleraine Leisure Centre, Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre (Ballymoney), Roe Valley Leisure Centre (Limavady) and Sheskburn Recreation Centre (Ballycastle).

Each course costs £32 per person, however there is a discount ticket available priced at £26 per course per person, available for anyone enrolling on a minimum of three courses (activities must be booked at the same time).

The Summer Recreation Programme also includes summer activity schemes based in Coleraine West, Ballysally, Bushmills, Portstewart, Castlerock, Garvagh, Kilrea, Dungiven, Armoy and Cushendall.
