Governor Stuart Jack and his wife Mariko Jack will host the first Sports at Government House Open Day this Saturday from 3pm to 6pm.
The event will showcase the wealth of sporting activities available to Cayman’s youth and adults. More than 15 leading sports associations will be featured on the grounds and beach area of Government House to promote a variety of sports and healthier lifestyles, states a press release.
Exhibitions during the afternoon will highlight many of these sports, and the public is invited to participate in all of the activities.
Sports and activities to be showcased include badminton, basketball, boxing cricket, football, netball, rugby, sailing, squash, swimming, tennis, volleyball and kayaking.
Other participants include Motions Unlimited, Purple Dragon, the Olympic Committee, Special Olympics, Cayman Maritime Heritage Foundation, the Athletic Association and the Catboat Association, Public Health, Cayman Rehab Services and the Red Cross.
‘This event is open to everyone, and we would like to encourage our children and youth especially,’ Mr. Jack said.
Because it will be an interactive afternoon, sport attire is appropriate for this event.
