Asda is re-launching its Sporting Chance programme which aims to get children swapping computer games for a variety of free sporting sessions across Norfolk.

Local sporting venues in the area will offer children a wide range of sports lessons over the half-term, from martial arts, dance and basketball. Each lesson will be completely free and is designed to help parents keep their children both entertained and active during the school breaks.

To receive your free session voucher simply pick one up at the checkout at the Acle New Road store then log onto www.asda-sportingchance.co.uk to see what free activities are available in your area, then book a place.

Vouchers are available from today until next Saturday, February 21.

Store manager Sarah Blowers said: “Sporting Chance is all about getting children involved in sporting activities within Great Yarmouth and there's something to suit everyone's taste.”
