It’s been an amazing summer of sport so far!
After mixed fortunes for the home nations in the Euros, home pride was restored when Andy Murray claimed the Wimbledon men’s singles’ title. And then Chris Froome continued the party when he won the Tour de France in fabulous style!
Now, it’s the turn of the Rio Olympics and the chance to see modern legends like superstar runner Usain Bolt and Brit favourite, heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill among the many inspirational performances on offer.
And we’ve had our share of inspiring performances at the Arena in our Summer of Sport!
Martin Jones won our Tour De France gym challenge, covering a staggering 1424km, followed by Jackie Birks (1005km) and Julian Wood (828km). They all now get to enjoy some much needed retail therapy having won Trafford Centre shopping vouchers.
We are now into our Olympic Challenges, where we are challenging our members to combine their efforts to cover the 9.351km to Rio. As well as raising money for charity, members are in with a chance of winning a much sought-after Technogym Active Sitting Ball. If cardio isn’t your thing, why not try our many strength challenges, where there are also lots of spot prizes up for grabs.
And this weekend (Sunday 14th August), there’s a chance for you and your family to get involved in the Great British Tennis Weekend, where there will be a variety of FREE Tennis coaching and play sessions for all the family.
