Inclusive sport


Primetime is an initiative that uses sport to reduce isolation in rural areas.

The sessions are for any age or ability but particularly those looking for social interaction. You can take part in Boccia, a game similar to bowls, and New Age Kurling, which is like the Kurling you see played on ice but using stones with ball-bearings so it can be played in your village hall.  Fees are between £2.00-£3.00 per session.

Sessions are available as follows:

Tholthorpe - Mondays - 10:00am - 12 noon at Tholthorpe Village Hall - YO61 1SN

Stillington - Mondays - 1:30pm - 3:30pm at Stillington Sports and Social Club - YO61 1LJ
