Sign Up And Get Active At The Sports Expo

Next weekend the eighth annual Whitsunday Sportspark Expo will transform the Whitsunday PCYC into a buzzing hub for sports enthusiasts of all kinds who will come together and discover new clubs and sign-up for exciting seasons ahead.

There will be a wide range of different sports represented and showcased by experts and coaches who each host interactive stalls where attendees can learn more about the sport, the commitment involved and whether it would suit their lifestyles.

This is an opportunity for parents to ask questions and discover new avenues for their child’s fitness, recreation and sporting futures.

Chairman of the Whitsunday Sportspark, Justin Butler, said that joining a sports club is a positive step for any family and a great way to start the new year.

“It’s time to get active and healthy – get away from your screens, get off your coach and get amongst your community,” he said.

“The Expo gives parents the opportunity to find out more about the amazing local sports we have available here in this area.”

The event promises to be an action-packed, fun occasion for all the family - try your hand at tennis, jump on the back of a stationary trail bike, explore a sailing boat, hit a golf ball and meet the team captains of some of Australia’s favourite sports.

There will be plenty of information and an opportunity to meet other families, grab some refreshments and plan a new year of sport.
