Sasha Corbin said: "It is a great idea to get parents playing sport with their kids, we don't see it happening enough. FunFit Families is a great initiative."

Kadeen Corbin added: "We have been brought up playing sport as a family, it's always been a focus for our family. It's a really good way to bond and having fun together at such a young age is great to see."

Families signing up to the initial 12-week programme, run out of 14 venues, will get free access to sports equipment, new ideas for fun activities and prizes.
