Whalley Range Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club
encourages a smoke-free environment
Whalley Range Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club encourages a smoke-free environment, both in the club house and on the field of play. Even at amateur level, cricketers and tennis players are increasingly athletic, watching their diets and avoiding harmful substances so that their fitness is maximised. In particular, we promote a healthy lifestyle to our junior players and take a dim view of them smoking. But we are aware that some of them return to a home environment where smoking cigarettes is acceptable. Education about the dangers of passive smoking is part of the relationship between sport and healthy lifestyles, and is vital if our young players are going to achieve success as players and as citizens. We are delighted to be working with Manchester’s Stop Smoking Service to help drive this message home.
