Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

GRAB your rac­quets, clubs and sticks be­cause the ac­tion will be ball and all dur­ing Black­town City’s Fam­ily Sports­Fest.

Black­town In­ter­na­tional Sportspark will be­come a mecca for sport fans on Satur­day, with sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, coach­ing clin­ics, ath­lete ap­pear­ances and in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays from more than 27 of Western Syd­ney’s sports clubs, teams and as­so­ci­a­tions.

Black­town Mayor Stephen Bali said there would be some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“The pur­pose of Sports­Fest is to give peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved with lo­cal sport­ing and recre­ation groups,” Cr Bali said.

“Too of­ten, peo­ple say there is noth­ing to do in Black­town, which I think is com­pletely rid- icu­lous. The day will be a chance for fam­i­lies to see what or­gan­i­sa­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties are avail­able, as well as be­ing able to try dif­fer­ent sports, such as fenc­ing.”

The event will in­clude coach­ing clin­ics hosted by the NRL, Syd­ney Blue Sox, Western Syd­ney Wan­der­ers, Syd­ney Thun­der and AFL.

The day’s fes­tiv­i­ties will kick off from noon and run un­til 4pm.
