Kelly Sports

Looking for something to do with your child from 4.30pm-6.30pm for the next 8 weeks. Bring a picnic mat, have a natter with other adults, while your child comes and plays! If you have a 5 - 12 year old - let them come and have a play in the park! We will have all sorts of equipment out that they can come and have a go with.

You just need to sign your child in, sit back and watch from your picnic mat while our Kelly Sports Taranaki coaches have gear available to play with. We really look forward to seeing you there!
