The Jumpers 4 Goalposts programme is a great way for youngsters to keep active and safe during the holidays. The Park Activities, run in conjunction with Catch 22 Positive Futures get young people playing a range of sports in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Activities include:

Kwik Cricket

Funded through the Ipswich Borough Council Area Committees, they are designed to get as many young people as active as possible. All sessions are led by qualified and checked staff with many years’ experience delivering exciting opportunities.

The full programme can be found below and are located across Ipswich in our Parks and Open Spaces.

All sessions are designed for 10+ Years of age. 

Due to Covid-19 we will be implementing a booking system for all Jumpers for Goalposts activities due to the limited number of spaces on each session.
