Have fun, make friends, be challenged, stay fit, be active.
If you would like to see and hear about the activities, groups, and clubs operating across the Fraser Coast then check out the Fraser Coast Sports Expos on Sunday, February 10.
“The Expo, to be held in Hervey Bay PCYC, will bring together a range of recreational, social and leisure groups to display their activities,” Cr Daniel Sanderson said.
“People will be able to browse the stalls to get information, sign up or become a volunteer at their chosen sports and activities.”
The Fraser Coast Sports Expo will be held at the Hervey Bay PCYC from 9am to noon on Sunday, February 10.
It is free to enter.
Organisations which would like to have a stall at the expo can contact Council’s Sport and Recreation Officer on 1300 79 49 29.
“More than 3,000 people visited the Expo in Hervey Bay last year to view displays put on by 90 groups from across the region.” Cr Sanderson said.
“At this stage, we’ve already secured some exciting features such as a team from the Australian Medical Association of Queensland which will conduct free health checks and the Brisbane Roar Football Club Rapid Fire Inflatable football field.”
This is Maryborough’s second Allsports Showcase after a successful inaugural showcase in February last year. This time, however, the venue has slightly changed. It will again be at the Maryborough State High School but this year it will be in the newly built hall. The move has given the opportunity for Tennis, Basketball, Netball and other outdoor sports to demonstrate on the courts and fields.
The best part about the Allsports Showcase is that it is a free event. Free entry and free for the participating sports clubs and associations. There are over 26 clubs to be represented at this year’s event including roller derby, clay target shooting and chess. The showcase offers a great opportunity for everyone to see what activities are available in Maryborough and for the clubs to showcase themselves to possible members.
The event is on Saturday 9th February at 9.30am to 12.30pm. There will be food and drinks available for purchase on the day. If your sporting club would like to participate or for more details please email firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Facebook at Maryborough Allsports.
