Keep it Simple

  • Plan an evening meeting of sports! It could be a tournament of a single sport, or you could bring equipment for multiple sports and play a few short games.

Take it Further

  • Organize a sports day for younger members of your Group, or other people in your area. It can be a tournament of some sport, a series of organized games or races, or a chance for people to try out new sports they’ve never tried before, such as pickleball, sepak takraw or Spikeball.
