On Saturday 7th September we held our annual Family Fun Day. Islanders were once again encouraged to get active, enjoy themselves and try something new during the event at Saumarez Park.
The event offered a variety of free sports taster sessions for all ages to get involved in. The Guernsey Sports Commission hopes that, through the free activities, islanders will have the chance to discover new hobbies or sports they can continue to enjoy as a family.
It was a fun filled day with lots to try! We were really pleased with how the day went, lots of people, smiling faces and luck was on our side with the weather. Activities on offer included Athletics, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Fencing, Football, Golf, Petanque and Tennis. In addition we had a stand from the Island Games 2021 Team, as well as Free Play and an Inflatable Football Pitch. Sports coaches and volunteers were additionally on hand to help people make the most of the sessions and answer any questions.
We’ve had lots of great feedback and we had over 200 entries into our Activity Challenge raffle.
We would like to pass on our thanks to all of the sports who chose to be part of the day and the activities which they put on!
Photos from the day will be posted onto our Facebook Page.
