Mackay and Whitsunday Life
The Whitsunday Sports Expo kicks off this weekend at Whitsunday PCYC, inviting locals to come along and find out about junior and adult sporting opportunities in the region.
With over 30 team and individual sports on show at the Whitsunday Sportspark, there’s no better opportunity to find your passion, keep fit, or meet a community of likeminded people.
Sport can be a support system for life, providing friendship, competition, exercise, and drive. For kids, it presents them with a gamified version of skills development, of teamwork, and with the opportunity to make lifelong friends – or even potentially make a career of it!
For adults, sport holds the same opportunities: camaraderie, keying into your ambition, and the all-important exercise – which we might not always find the time for.
Australia, and Queensland in particular, are sport mad – and for good reason. Whether your sport of choice be one of individual development (karate, weightlifting, swimming), where your goal is to be the best you every day, or team oriented (football, rugby, netball, and more). There’s plenty to pick from and to start kicking goals.
Chairman of the Whitsunday Sportspark, Justin Butler, said that its time to get active and get healthy – “get amongst your community”.
“Find out more about the amazing local sports we have available here in this area. Joining a club is a positive step for any family and a great way to start the new year,” Justin said.
Sports from across the entire spectrum will be on display at the Whitsunday Sports Expo this weekend – come and have a kick, ride a trail bike, explore a sailing bit, or tee off!
