Give it a spin: Pitch up and play Disc Golf at Arrow Valley Park

Ross Crawford 20th Jul, 2020

PITCH up at Arrow Valley Park on Saturday, August 1 to celebrate National Disc Golf Day for a day of fund and games with the team from Rubicon Leisure.

From 11am to 4pm families will be able to turn up and enjoy a go on the disc golf course for free.

The course will be suitable for all ages and abilities and everyone who registers will receive a free Frisbee, course map and scorecard. Just like in regular golf, the aim of the game is to get the disc into the target in the fewest throws.

Officers from Redditch Borough Council will be set up outside the Arrow Valley Visitor Centre next to the kiosk, and anyone who wants to play simply needs to register before taking part.

Teams will be a maximum of six and social distancing measures will be put in place to keep players safe.

“Lockdown has been hard for families and individuals across Redditch and I’m just glad to see more activities are returning to give people opportunities to get out and do something active,” said Councillor Mike Rouse, deputy leader of the borough.

“As a council we are acutely aware that parks and open spaces are vital, especially in a world fighting a virus, so I am pleased we are able to work with our partners at Rubicon to deliver this service to residents.”

Sports development officer Hayley Gwilliam added: “This is the perfect way to get out of the house, have fun and get active as a family.”
