Ashton Explore: Health & Fitness kicks off for 2023!

9 October 2023

As part of the Ashton Explore programme, lots of students get involved in Health and Fitness opportunities. These opportunities range from lunchtime sessions to playing competitively for one of our college teams.

Russell, our Sports Coordinator runs several sessions during lunchtimes: Futsal, Volleyball, Table Tennis and Badminton. Students are able to go along to any of these sessions and participate without signing up! 

There are also weekly fixtures for our college sports teams, which include Men & Women Football, Men & Women Basketball, Netball and Rugby. Since the beginning of term, the sports teams have been training hard for upcoming fixtures. 

Our Netball team recently had their first match against Priestly Sixth Form. The game was close, but our girls stayed ahead and we won 33-29! 

Our men's Basketball team also had their first home game against Oldham College last week. Our team stayed constinetly focused and we won 53-32!

Additional to these wins, our Rugby team have been training for their first fixture and our Girl's Football team have played 3 fixtures!

We look forward to seeing many more wins from our college sports teams throughout the academic year.
