For Immediate release

September sport month has activity options for every one

September is going to be a month full of low cost of free activities and events in the east Hamilton area, with a range of options available for all fitness levels. The event is being held by the East Hamilton Sport and Recreation Hub.

The purpose of this initiative is to be a promotional tool to raise awareness and increase the overall usage and participation of sport and recreational facilities, events and existing programs in the east Hamilton area. This includes University of Waikato, Eastlink clubs and Hamilton city council facilities and programs.

“The project supports clubs, schools, and the University of Waikato to work collaboratively to promote the benefits of partnerships, which result in growing participation” says East Hamilton Sport and Recreation Hub project manager, Zoe Toombs.

The project is a partnership between Hamilton City Council, Sport Waikato and the University of Waikato and is also supported and primarily funded by Sport NZ.

There is a wide range of activities on offer during the month of September from Zumba and local walking groups, to Ultimate Frisbee. A calendar of events will be published and advertised in the coming weeks.

“This September sports month is a great opportunity to try a new activity that you might not have previously been aware of. All activities during this month are low cost at $5 or less” says Toombs.

Also as part of the September sports month, Eastlink clubs at Lugton Park will be having a community open day for all to attend on Saturday 20th September. There will be facility tours, have a go sessions, food, and NZ Sports Representatives.
