SIX weeks’ free gym membership is available to young people.

Horizon Leisure Centres, in Waterlooville and Havant, have teamed up with Sportivate to offer a new programme to encourage Leigh Park residents aged 16 to 25 to get more active.

Operations manager Carl Shear said: ‘We’re always looking for new initiatives to engage the community and to offer further opportunities for them to enjoy the facilities available at the leisure centre.’

Since it started in 2011, Sportivate has given more than 14,000 young people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight the opportunity to take part in a six to eight-week sporting activity that has inspired many to continue attending a weekly session.

Penny Woods, from Sport Hampshire & IOW said: ‘We believe that there is a sport for everyone and Sportivate is there to help young people to discover theirs whether that is badminton or dance, canoeing or handball.
