Mad Sports thrill all fans

MAD Sports games kicked off the Youth Week activities yesterday as a range of adrenalin pumping sports kept the youth of Tweed entertained.

Thirty Mad Sport enthusiasts ranging from the ages of seven to 19 showed up at the Banora Point Community Centre to take part in the activities.

Games including relay races, hula hooping and Bulrush kept the participants entertained throughout the day.

Mad Sports is a company that provides exciting, fun and inclusive sports activities to the Tweed community.

Youth Week co-ordinator Jemima Priede said the day suited youth who were looking for a more active outlet.

“The Mad Sports activities encouraged the kids to be active and it was great for kids who didn’t want to sit still at the art workshops to have something physical to do,” Jemima said.

Youth Week activities continue to roll on this week with a number of events including a BMX competition and Battle of the Bands still to come.

Youth Week is an opportunity for young people aged 12 to 25 to express their ideas and views, act on issues which affect their lives and create entertainment.

Tweed Youth Week activities will conclude on Friday, April 16.
