HSBC Golf Roots (Friday Night Project)

Young people from the Friday Night Project at Middleton Leisure Centre were invited to take part in a series of Tri Golf sessions.  These sessions were part of the HSBC Golf Roots project that has been running within the Inner South Locality in Leeds since October. Forty young people have engaged with the project since it began.

A number of skills challenges took place including nearest the pin, street golf challenges and a putting competition. Young people were given information about local golf opportunities and more information about the HSBC Golf Roots sessions in Leeds.
