Holiday activities

leisure centres in Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Wirksworth have a range of activities to keep youngsters active and healthy during the school summer holidays.

Young people are being given the opportunity to take a crash course in swimming, try table tennis, trampolining, climbing, water polo, diving or snorkelling. Visitors can even go hi-tech with brand new Xbox Kinect sessions .

Or youngsters can join in with Derbyshire Dales’ very own mini-Olympic events in Matlock and Wirksworth.

Also new at Ashbourne for 2011, there’s Rubicon Skate Board School.
