Fusion Lifestyle and South Hams District Council are pleased to announce that a new programme of health and fitness focussed Youth Nights will re-start on Friday 21st January 2022 at Totnes Leisure Centre in Borough Park Road.  

All young people aged between 11-16 years in the district are invited to come along and enjoy a range of activities at the pool and gym, as well as an engaging in an exciting partnership with Plymouth Argyle Football Club, who will be providing a community multi-sport coach to lead activity in the sports hall. 

The Youth Nights programme will run from 6pm-8pm weekly during term time and will cost £2.50 for each session, with the first session being offered free. Pre-Covid, Youth Nights were a regular feature at Totnes centre, with over 50 people attending  each week, so the team at Totnes are hoping to welcome many young people back who have missed these popular sessions.
