Hundreds of people descended on Lincoln Domain on Sunday for the Selwyn District Council’s annual ‘Have a Go Day’.

It’s the third year the event has been held and it attracted hundreds of locals and visitors to try a wide variety of sports. Council’s senior events and recreation advisor Dave Tippett said there were around 30 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and challenges on offer.

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