Racket Social – Sponsored by Trent Navigation

What is the Racket Social project about?

Occurring every Saturday morning from 10AM – 12PM at The Portland Centre, it is a racket sport session, with a social twist! Racket Social gives participants the chance to come and try one of many racket-based sports in a sociable and friendly environment. Whether you want to try something new as a beginner or have a competitive game with a friend, Racket Social offers the perfect environment.  A 2-hour session with an informal approach arrive when you like, leave when you like and feel free to rest up and change racket sports along with free tea and coffee to assist those breaks. Racket sports on offer include table tennis, badminton, short tennis, pickle ball and squash.


The weekly price to join is £4 for adults and £2.50 for Under 16’s.


Participants also get a Racket Social loyalty card, which after 9 paid sessions, they get the 10th free! This loyalty card can be able to be used at the sponsor venue Trent Navigation to get a discount on food and drink, too!

What difference does Racket Social make?

Racket Social gives people the opportunity to keep fit, while developing a strong social connection while on their wellbeing journey. This is a great way to keep up or add to your physical activity levels with but with all the fun and enjoyment of a sociable and friendly atmosphere. A participant said: “It’s been great to come along and meet new people, I have also really enjoyed having a go at other sports that I wouldn’t normally try. This has made a big difference to my activity levels and to top it off I do all this smiling as I really enjoy the activities and people”
