Excitement mounts for family fun day

2018-06-13 06:02

EXCITEMENT is mounting for the family fun day, to be hosted by the Baptist Association of South Africa on June 16 at the Stanger Manor Primary School grounds commencing at 9 am.

Churches in KwaDukuza are hard at work preparing their Sunday School children and youth for the exciting athletics programme that is planned. There is expected to be fierce rivalry on the athletics tracks, especially among the little ones in the primary school category, as competitors try to secure a podium finish and earn a commemorative medal.

With the family fun day held on the eve of Father’s Day, the fathers are expected to come out in droves to impress not only their families but also for their chance to take home a medal in commemoration of their achievement.

Some of the fathers and mothers race events include a 150 m race, a walking race, the father and son race and the inter-church relay.

The six-a-side cricket tournament (comprising of five males and a female) is expected to unleash the potential of both males and females.

The duration of each game will be three overs per side. A Slazenger ball will be used and thus a flurry of fours and sixes are expected.

Special awards will be presented to the best bowler, fielder, and batsman of the tournament.

The volleyball tournament will run concurrently with the athletics meeting. All volleyball matches will be contested on the basis of one set of 21 points. All volleyball teams must comprise four males and two females.

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup, being held in Russia, barely 10 days away, the five-a-side soccer tournament is expected to be a popular spectator sport as churches root for teams in their quest for honours. There will be two halves of three minutes apiece and, in the event of a deadlock, a penalty shootout will ensue.

No picnic baskets will be allowed on the grounds. There will be food stalls throughout the ground ensuring that the tastebuds of all visitors and players will be taken care of.

Some of the food on offer includes breyani, hot dogs, fresh chips, burgers, roti rolls, bunny chows, samoosas and fried corn with stalls being run by different churches from KwaDukuza. There will be a tea garden providing tea, coffee, cakes and savouries. The elderly will be treated to free coffee/tea and cakes.

The fun run around the suburb of Stanger Manor gets underway at 8 am.

Tickets will be sold from 7 am onwards. Medals will be awarded to all finishers.
