Junior Half Term Holiday Activites

The February half term holiday programme at Canons Leisure Centre this year will feature a whole host of sports and activities for the kids to be entertained. Whether the weather brings rain or shine we will have it covered, with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities planned.

Kids who come down to Canons during the half term holidays will be able to enjoy taking part in our swim sessions, as well as try their hand at the many sports and activities in the centre’s play scheme.  Teens are able to get stuck into a game of football, or grab a racket and have a game of badminton or short tennis, all under the supervision of the centre’s highly trained staff.
