“It is suitable for children of any ages, however, some clubs have expressed an interest to host some adult taster sessions should they be requested to do so. We can’t wait to see how it turns out – it’s shaping up to be a really great event.

“There is a chance for participants to collect stickers or stamps from each session and add them into a sports passport. Once they have collected as many as they can, they then return their passports to us where they will receive a certificate and be placed into a prize draw for some amazing sports-themed prizes.”

Clubs participating on the day include Falkirk Community Trust Tennis, Falkirk Junior Bike Club, Project Theatre, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders ACF, Grangemouth Broncos Flag Football, Grangemouth Kelpies Rugby Club, Sapphire Cheer, Falkirk Fury Basketball and Cycling Without Age
