Half term break provides fulltime fun!

George Green's 2 Greenhouse Sports participants like to keep active during school holidays and this February half term was no exception as programmes all over London provided outstanding sports session, to keep our youngsters happy and focused.  Greenhouse Sports East London Table Tennis programmes provided some amazing opportunities for young people to develop not only their table tennis skills, but many other aspects of their lives.

Regardless of whether we are on half term or not, Greenhouse Sports is committed to using sport to help young people living in the inner city to realise their full potential.  Three schools in Tower Hamlets hosted training camps over the February half term break including Raine’s Foundation, Morpeth and George Green’s. Morpeth were joined by pupils from Rokeby; Eastbury pupils linked up with the George Green’s pupils and Greenhouse Sports’ performance programme shared the facility with Raine’s. Over the course of the week over 150 different pupils attended the week long provision provided by the Charity.


Greenhouse Sports Senior Head Coach, Stephen Gertsen said “it is extremely rewarding to see the venues at full capacity with enthusiastic young people inspired by our amazing team of coaches. The half term camps were a pleasure to be part of; there was so much energy! Our team of coaches work very well together, and Greenhouse Sports is such a rewarding place to work. Of course there is that competitive element at schools competition, but as whole coaches see the bigger picture, we are trying to make better people through sport.”

Greenhouse Sports constantly strives to improve programmes and ability to affect lives for the better. The Greenhouse Sports STEP framework focuses on the skills at the heart of our mission: the Social, Thinking, Emotional, and Physical skills that we seek to develop in our young people. We believe these skills will help our participants to lead happy and healthy lives, and to act as positive social influences both at school and beyond.
