Locals can have a crack with Come and Try Calendar

Date published: 3 February 2023

Try everything from tai chi to archery to group sports for free with the 2023 Come and Try Calendar.

The calendar is jam packed with free local sports and active events to try during February and March.

Community Health, Safety and Environmental Sustainability Committee chairperson Maurie Soars said the calendar was the easiest way to find the right activity for you or your kids this year.

“The Come and Try Calendar makes getting active simple, with a huge variety of activities like martial arts, dancing, and ball sports available,” Cr Soars said.

“All you have to do is check out the calendar and head down to whichever activity sounds best, giving you the opportunity to try it for free.

“This initiative from Council helps encourage locals of all ages and abilities to try their hand at a new hobby to get active.

“The Come and Try Calendar will officially launch tonight 03 February 2023 at the Get Active Sign On event at Queensland Country Bank Stadium, so grab a copy while you’re there or jump onto the What’s On Townsville website to see what’s on the calendar this year.”
