Activities fans old and young are invited to Wanaka Recreation Centre next Wednesday (October 11) to take part in a range of sports and games.
Grab Your Grandparents will offer activities like table tennis, badminton and walking netball and Penny Batchelor, team leader at Wanaka Recreation Centre, said it will be an opportunity for people of all ages to meet.
“We’re trying to get a fun morning together in the holidays for people who want to come and do activities. We wanted to provide something different and a chance to relive some of the stuff we used to do when we were younger and it aims to bring different ages together to do something they may not otherwise do.”

Although the event was designed with grandparents in mind, Sam White, spokesperson for Queenstown Lakes District Council, said that anyone is welcome and that the appeal would be much broader.
“It’s not just for relatives. It’s an opportunity to invite along an older friend or neighbour to spend time getting to know others from a different generation in a safe, active environment.”
Grab Your Grandparents will run from 10am-12pm and is for all ages. It is $5 per pair and $2 for any additional youngsters, which includes morning tea.
People can just turn up on the day, but confirming attendance in advance if possible is appreciated.
