This week Club Evergreens members and staff at Sutton Sports Village came together to practise the range of activities they will be competing in at the Club Games this year on Friday 10th November.

The annual event, held at the Copper Box Arena and Aquatics Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park sees Better centres from all over the region compete in Badminton, Short Tennis, Short Mat Bowls, Dominoes, Darts, Timed Swim, Timed Cycle and Table Tennis and this will be the first time Sutton Sports Village have entered. Our Walking Football team will compete the week before in the hotly anticipated tournament at Ferndale Leisure Centre in Brixton.

Staff joined in with badminton, short tennis and table tennis and even tried their hand at darts and short mat bowls to show their support for our team. It was a great opportunity for members to talk team tactics, get tips from coaches and enjoy a sociable cuppa afterwards in our Lounge.

With teams being confirmed in the next few weeks, we’ll be ramping up the sessions so everyone feels confident on the big day so watch out for further updates shortly!

If you are interested in joining our Club Evergreens program, which offers daily sporting sessions and off-peak access to our fitness classes – including Yoga, Line Dancing and Aerolatino – speak to a member of our team in the centre, call 020 8641 6611 or visit www.better.org.uk/suttonclub. There’s even free tea and coffee to wind down after your workout and an active social side where you can meet like-minded people in the area. Prices start at just £4 for a drop-in class or sports session.
