Corby Council is offering people the chance to try their hand at a new sport in a bid to keep the Olympic spirit going after the London Games.

After watching the games many people have been motivated to have a go at a new sport and the council, in partnership with Northamptonshire Sport, is offering everyone the opportunity to learn how to play handball.

The sessions start on Wednesday, January 30, and are open to people of all ages who can go along and develop their handball skills.

They will be held at Maplefields School, Tower Hill Road, Corby, from 5pm to 6pm for 11-year-olds and under, from 6pm to 7pm for 12 to 16-year-olds, and from 7.15pm to 8.45pm for 17-year-olds and older.

Sessions cost £3 for under 16s and £4 for adults.

Corby Council’s lead member for community Cllr John McGhee said: “This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to learn a new and exciting Olympic sport.

“We hope that this could be a stepping stone for those interested to possibly begin gaining qualifications within handball.”
