It’s time for Selwyn residents to ‘have a go’ at a huge variety of sport and recreation activities at this year’s Have a Go Day.

The free Selwyn District Council and Selwyn Sports Trust annual event is now in its fourth year, and will return on Sunday 26 August between 12 and 3pm at the new location of Darfield Recreation Centre and Domain.

Selwyn District Council Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett says the day has been one of the most popular events on the district’s recreation calendar.

"Over 1200 people enjoyed trying out new sports and activities at Have a Go Day in 2017," he says.

"We’re excited to bring the event to Darfield this year to showcase the sport and recreation activities Darfield, neighbouring communities and the wider Selwyn district has to offer."

Around 20 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and challenges are planned, including dodgeball, archery, quake floorball, golf, squash, skating, highland games, smallbore rifle, bowling, softball, and much more.

Those attending will be able to collect their ‘Have a Go Day passport’ from any activity station. This event is for all ages and abilities.

More than $700 worth of prizes will be up for grabs on the day. Live music will be provided as part of the entertainment, with coffee and food also available for purchase.
