New sports clubs have opened for teenagers.

The Door Step Clubs for 11 to 19-year-olds meets at Heybridge Plantation Hall this Friday from 5pm to 6pm and Southminster Community Hall tomorrow from 6pm to 7pm.

Essex Boys and Girls Club will organise different sports each week, based on what youngsters want to do, for a six month pilot.

Volunteers are also needed to help run activities and they will have the chance to undergo training and gain qualifications.
