“The goal of our sports camp is to ensure that we have qualified coaches on site throughout the summer offering free coaching in a variety of sports,” Jack Harrison, sport development manger for Bankside Open Spaces Trust, said.
BOST will provide free activities in Marlborough Sports Garden located at 27 Union St, London SE1 1SD.
Marlborough has a 3G five-a-side football pitch, a beach volleyball court, as well as facilities for netball, short tennis, basketball, and table tennis for starters.
