Summer Fun For Kids In Battersea Park

Including athletics, judo, tennis, rowing and more

Children and young people from across Wandsworth will be able to enjoy an array of fun activities in Battersea Park later this month, courtesy of a local crime busting charity.

From Tuesday, August 28 to Friday, August 31, young people aged between eight and 16 can enjoy a range of summer activities thanks to the Battersea Crime Prevention Panel and generous sponsorship, and support from a range of local companies and organisations, including the council, Met Police, the QVC shopping channel, Chelsea Football Club, the Peter Jones department store and the army.

Sporting attractions include tennis, judo, football, cricket, tennis, archery, athletics, tag rugby, rowing and boxing. Others include a high ropes course, trapeze rig and climbing wall, as well as arts, crafts, music and dance.

There will also be careers advice available for older teenagers and the chance to find out more about some of the organisations that are taking part.

The event is part of the Battersea Crime Prevention Panel's Summer Scheme, which provides young people with constructive, interesting and worthwhile activities during the school holiday and encourages good citizenship.

The activities are being staged at Battersea Park's Millennium Arena and begin every day at 11.30am and continue until 4.30pm. Entry per day is just £1. For more information visit
