Youngsters had a ball at a recent free-to-attend ‘Sports Saturday’ in the Nevis Centre featuring football, table tennis, badminton and tennis.

Girls and boys, mainly of primary school age, enjoyed the football sessions which began with a warm up before the attention turned to ball techniques and games throughout the afternoon.

Organised and coached by centre manager Mark Ewan, the event was a success, with parents watching from the sidelines in the main hall.

The An Aird venue is becoming a hub of sport, drama and learning activities for youngsters from primary to late teenage ages.

Mark said: ‘The Nevis Centre has plenty room and a range of facilities well suited to offering different things to do. We are open all day and into the evening which means we can be flexible with times.’
