CHILDREN at 30 primary schools in South Wales will have the opportunity to learn golf and join clubs, thanks to a fresh partnership between Wales Golf and PlaySports.

The Caerphilly based company will provide Tri-Golf delivery across a number of primary schools in South East Wales, whilst Wales Golf will provide the exit route into clubs nearby as well as supply the youngsters with equipment.

PlaySports is a not-for-profit sports development company, which offers a range of services delivered by professionally qualified coaches.

“This is an exciting partnership which will help us give more children the chance to try golf,” said Theo Baker, community golf development co-ordinator.

“This will also offer them a clear path into club membership for those who are interested in taking it further.

“It will involve PlaySports going into schools to provide sessions in lunchtime sport, after-school clubs, PPA/Supply and enrichment provisions as well as holiday clubs.”

PlaySports also runs schemes covering a variety of sports across schools in South Wales.

Michael Jenkins, PlaySports assistant team manager, said: “We’re really grateful and pleased at the opportunity provided to work in partnership with Wales Golf.”
