A wide range of free sporting activities will be on offer at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre on Saturday, September 16, as it hosts its annual Health Action Day.

Now in its 13th year, the event is aimed at improving health and wellbeing for the whole community.

The centre, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Stevenage Borough Council, will offer a wide range of free activities alongside health and wellbeing support.

Running from 10am to 2pm, free activities, suitable for all ages and abilities, will include table tennis, youth tennis, dodge ball, walking tennis and fitathon – all raising money for dementia charities.

Visitors will also benefit from free health tests and health and wellbeing stalls offering free advice and support. 


Booking onto activities will be available via the Everyone Active App and website prior to the event.

On the day, the centre will also be showcasing its newly refurbished gym area, offering free access to its new, state-of-the-art fitness equipment. 

Allan Prescott, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: "Alongside driving the health and wellbeing of the local community, the day will offer an opportunity for everyone to experience our fantastic newly refurbished gym facilities.

"Please keep your eye on our Facebook page, where we’ll be sharing the link to book onto free activities soon."
