DUNKING youngsters turned up in droves for a special Easter basketball camp in Clacton.

More than 40 children were put through their paces by three coaches from Clacton Cannons Basketball Club.

It was set up by Tendring Council at Clacton Leisure Centre as part of the Easter holiday activity programme.

Mark Platt, council cabinet member for leisure services said: “The basketball camp has proved really popular and I am sure it will be put on again in the future.

“It is great to see the young people getting involved in the sport from such an early age and it is also a chance for the club to promote itself.”

Clacton Cannons has more than 100 members over a range of age groups.
