Multi-Sport Activities (Sat /Sun, 12-6pm)
Sports Hall Athletics – a form of track & field athletics for children between the ages of 4 & 16. It was created by George Bunner MBE to provide a safe and warm environment for young people to engage in fundamental movements.
Traditional Games – harken back to the golden age of the ‘egg and spoon race’. Enjoy traditional sports days games such as sack races, long jumps and more.
Pickleball – combines elements of badminton, tennis, and ping-pong. It’s played on a badminton-sized court with a slightly lowered tennis net and with light bats and a plastic ball with circular holes (a wiffle ball).
Balance Bikes – mini, “back to basics” bikes, with no chains, pedals or gears, so toddlers and pre-schoolers can just focus on balancing and steering, as safely as possible.
Activator Poles – an adaptation of Nordic Walking poles that have been developed by Canadian therapists to promote balance and improve mobility.
