For many, the Pesach School holidays are a time to relax. However, 41 young members of the Community decided to get active as they participated in Maccabi GB’s Pesach Sports Clinics, where they developed their skills in Table Tennis and, for the first time, Girls Football.
The specialised four-day-clinics were held at ‘Maccabi GB @ Kulanu’ – the MGB-managed indoor sports and events venue in Kenton – and were delivered by top-class Maccabi GB Sports Coordinators.
Over the duration of the sessions the young Table Tennis and Football enthusiasts from school years 5-8, attended the clinics to learn more about each sport and develop their skills, movement and techniques. By the end of each day those who took part were playing some exciting matches and showing off their newly learnt tricks.
Maccabi GB Schools and Sports Manager, Alex Elf, was impressed with the quality of the young players in both sessions. Speaking about the clinics he said, “To have over 40 young athletes who want to stay active and sporty is always positive. However, what was impressive was the commitment and passion of those who had never played either Table Tennis or Football before and wanted to learn a new sport altogether. These players are getting to use a top-class facility in ‘Maccabi GB @ Kulanu’, getting taught by highly-qualified sports coaches, so there was no better place to take part in these sports this week.”
He continued, “We hope to build on these clinics and want to see even more people attending the next ones we have planned for the upcoming School Holidays. Maccabi GB has worked incredibly hard to develop sport, health and wellbeing activities within the Community – for all ages - and the benefits of this will see healthier, fitter Jewish families for years to come.”
