Residents urged to Come 'N Try range of Noosa sports


A new Come‘n Try sports program rolls out across Noosa this week, giveing locals the chance to sample a range of sports for free.

Community Development Manager, Alison Hamblin said program is usually reserved for school students, but this year aims to encourage adults to try their hand at a range of sports.

“This is ideal for those who have always wanted to try a particular sport such as a gym class, or surfing, or cricket and have never had the courage, support or motivation to do so.

“We have a range of sports clubs, organisations and suppliers across the region who are opening their doors, classes and fields to local adults who want to sample different activities for free.”

The extensive three-week timetable features a vast range of sports with less-known activities such as pickleball on the schedule.

“Locals can try their hand at yoga and Dance-trumental classes in Noosaville or sailing classes at Lake Cootharaba, or even a hit of tennis in Tewantin or cricket in Cooroy.

“There’s so much for people to try for the first time, but it’s also a great reason to reconnect with an old sport or activity you used to love doing.

“There are also a number of local gyms and keep-fit studios right across the shire who are keen to get Noosa moving.

Ms Hamblin said locals can start registering for sports ahead of Monday’s launch date.

“Bookings are essential, so we encourage locals to check the schedule and book in their activities direct with the supplier now, before the opportunity to do so is gone.”

The Come ‘n Try program concludes on September 20.
