“We have excellent, modern facilities at our Bridlington campus and a fantastic set of students so it’s also an opportunity to talk to them about their East Riding College experience.”

Beth Rounding, 18, who is studying towards the Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport, said: “We’re looking forward to organising and taking part in the ‘have a go’ event.

“Organising sports events is part of the course so it’s a great opportunity to put what we’ve learnt into action.

“The course includes practical sessions in all of these sports and we also get the chance to play for fun and competitively outside of the course.”

The new multi-use sports pitch was opened by Olympic long jumper Chris Tomlinson last year.

The College’s advice and guidance officers will also be available during the event for anyone who would like to come along to discuss options. For more information about the event or college courses, call 0845 120 0037.
