If you're looking to join a sports club, get some

to find out what your options are in Selwyn. A new
online directory is now available for residents
listing sport and recreation activities in their area.
The directory includes over 180 listings and
covers a wide variety of activities including:
team sports like netball, cricket, rugby,
softball and football
archery and shooting
It also covers martial arts, yoga, walking groups,
gymnastics and many other different options.
Local sports facilities and a number of classes
are also included in the directory.
The directory can be searched by entering the
name of a township in Selwyn or by entering the
type of activity people want information on. The
directory lists contact information for the club,
activity or facility, a description of what is offered
and a website listing, if this is available.
The Council's Community Recreation Advisor,
Ginny Bowden, who coordinated the development
of the directory, says that it will help people living
in Selwyn to be active.
Groups wanting to list their activity in the
directory can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
