Selwyn residents will be able to try out at a huge variety of sports and recreation activities at this year’s ‘Have a Go Day’.

The annual event run by the Selwyn District Council is now in its third year and this year will be held on Sunday, August 27 between 12 and 3pm at the Lincoln Event Centre and Domain.

Council’s senior events and recreation advisor Dave Tippett said around 30 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and challenges are being planned. 

“Have a Go Day aims to showcase the sport and recreation activities Lincoln and the wider Selwyn District has to offer.

“Last year it was a very popular event with over 1,000 people enjoying a day of trying out new things.”

Mr Tippett said among the sports on offer will be golf, hockey, rugby league, highland games, yoga, basketball, archery and mini gym. 

“Coffee, a sausage sizzle, and live music will be provided as part of the entertainment.”
