Some of Wellington’s youngest sports fans will experience one of the world’s oldest sports at Sport Wellington’s Stadium Sports Festival, held at Westpac Stadium next week.
The Stadium Sports Festival takes place on Wednesday 30 March and aims to give school children the opportunity to experience sports they might not generally consider.
"This has always been a great participation sport, but inflatable courts enable it to be considered in a different way and offered at a lot more places. Schools and recreation programmes now have the opportunity to try it out for themselves and see if it’s right for what they have to offer.”
Six hundred school children in years five and six participated in 20 different sports at the 2015 event, giving them a chance to identify sports they enjoy and want to play regularly through school, KiwiSport programmes or clubs.
