The TESS is an initiative providing support and encouragement to the borough’s leading talented and elite sports performers. The scheme is supported by Telford & Wrekin Council Sports Development/Leisure Services and RICOH UK Products Limited.
The scheme aims to provide national level sports people with FREE access to the Council’s aspirations gyms for training and fitness. Facilities include:
- Abraham Darby Sports and Leisure Centre
- Oakengates Leisure Centre
- Wellington Civic and Leisure Centre
- Newport Swimming Pool
- Phoenix Sports and Leisure Centre
- Stirchley Recreation Centre.
The scheme is open to sports performers aged eleven years and over who currently perform, or compete in a sport recognised by Sport England at a national level and whose permanent home address is in Telford and Wrekin. It caters for sportspeople (including those with disabilities) who are:
- currently members of a national team or squad
- currently listed in the top 10 of any national age group ranking
- successful in any national age group competition (top 10 finish), in the last 12 months
Evidence or confirmation of a performer’s involvement at a national level will be required from the appropriate governing body of sport.
Terms and conditions
Selected individuals meeting the criteria will be granted membership to TESS which entitles the sports performer to utilise the Council aspirations gym facilities listed free of charge. It is hoped that TESS members will help promote and encourage other residents to increase their participation in sport and physical activity.
