Sport: A medley of free sporting activities will be on offer during a sport centre’s open weekend.

Longdean Sportspace in Bennetts End is showcasing the fitness and sporting activities it has to offer this Saturday and Sunday.

Visitors can check out the gym and take part in a range of sessions including table tennis, badminton, roller hockey, body combat and Egyptian dance.

Demonstrations will also be running, thanks to members from Hemel Storm Basketball Club and Dacorum Netball Club.

For football fans there is a chance to beat the goalie and a demonstration of Futsal – a type of five-a-side football.

Jeff Raine, duty manager at the sports centre in Rumballs Road, Hemel Hempstead, said: “The sports centre at Longdean is a hidden gem.

“A lot of local people don’t even realise they have the opportunity to enjoy a range of sports and fitness opportunities right on their doorstep.” Activities will run from 10am to 4pm on both days.
