Don't Just Watch it... Do it!

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 4, 2012) - Whilst many of us sit and watch all the sporting action on TV there will be some families out there willing to give it a go. Holidays are a great time to try out something new and exciting and on Haven holiday parks they offer a number of different sports opportunities including fencing and archery.

They take place in indoor sports zones so if you are unlucky with the weather then it won't spoil your fun. You are kitted out with everything you need and given professional tuition from the Haven sports and leisure team.

Graham Bell, five times Olympic skier and eight times British Champion officially opened 'airspace' the new £2.2 million indoor sports facility at Craig Tara holiday park in Ayrshire earlier this year. Graham, recently took up fencing and will be commentating on the sport during the London Olympics, he lost no time in changing into his gear and challenging eight year old Stephen Riley to a bout of fencing. 'I was lucky enough to try all sorts of activities as a child growing up in Scotland,' he said. 'My parents encouraged me to try as many sports as possible. 'Airspace' is a fantastic facility that will really make a difference for kids coming here on holiday. They will be able to have a go at a range of sports from climbing to fencing - as well as more usual activities such a football and basketball.'

Although some coached activities like football are included in the price of your holiday some do carry an extra charge. Best advice to pre-purchase some sports activity passes as you will save up to 25% but the average cost of a coached session is £6 per person.

These are just some of the sports activities available on all 35 Haven family holidays this summer.

Grab an early summer break from £149 or a school summer holiday break from £249 both prices are or a three night break at selected parks and dates in standard accommodation. Take a break at Craig Tara from £289 per family of 6 based on 20 July for three nights.
