Uddingston Cricket and Sports Club hosted its first summer multi-sport camp at the club grounds in Castle Avenue.

The camp was a success with 32 children avoiding the temptation of X-box and television for a week during the holidays to take part in sport and games action including football, hockey, rugby and cricket.

Throughout the week the youngsters also enjoyed other activities that might make an appearance at future Commonwealth Games. These included a sand castle-making competition, tug-of-war and octopus tig!

With the sunny weather it was fantastic to see the clubhouse and grounds so busy with active kids playing outdoors and making new friends.

Uddingston Cricket and Sports Club will be looking to organise future camps during the holidays and expect them to be even more successful and busier.

Camps convener Tom Hyndman said: “Well done to all the children who took part. Their good behaviour and enthusiasm made the camp a pleasure to run for Matt McEwan and me.”
