Get active with Whānau Passport Challenge

By:

Sport Bay of Plenty announced the 2018 Whānau Passport Challenge – the best chance for the whole family to get active and spend time together!

The Whānau Passport Challenge runs from October 13 to November 16 and encourages people to put down their screens, switch off from work and schedule some regular time together to get active and have a bit of whānau fun. 

The challenge includes a mix of free and discounted activities around Whakatāne and Tauranga, as well as fun physical activities to try at home. Among them are ten pin bowling, swimming and pool parties, roller discos, golf and blokarting plus loads more ideas for having some active whānau fun at home.

The greatest part about the challenge? For every activity completed, and stamp collected in the Whānau Passport, families will go in the draw to win some great prizes!

‘Research from the recent Active NZ survey by Sport New Zealand shows 30 per cent of adults are involved in active recreation or sport for less than 30 minutes a week,’ says recreation team leader Sonia Lynds. ‘We also know that fun is the main motivation for young people aged 5 to 17 to be involved in sport and recreation.’
