SOUTH West Sport is encouraging Warrnambool residents to get involved with minor sports croquet, table tennis, bowls and hockey.

The initiative, titled ‘Get Active at Albert Park’, involves City Memorial Bowls Club, Warrnambool City Croquet Club, Warrnambool Table Tennis Association and Warrnambool District Hockey Association opening their doors from 2pm to 4pm on Sunday at Warrnambool’s Cramer street sporting complex to allow residents to try alternative sports to bigger codes such as cricket, netball and football.  

“Its a fantastic initiative and it shows the sort of community we live in, when you have four different sports all coming together to offer something different for the community in which they live,” South West Sport program manager Andrew Sloane said.

“A lot of people have a preconceived perception about these different sports and this is a chance to challenge those and try something different and meet some fantastic people in the process.”
