Sport, Art & Play Weekender 2016

Posted by Lucie Gwilt at 11:08 on 18 August 2016


There are lots of fun activities occurring down at Barry Island on 20th and 21st  August, 2016 between 11:00am - 4:00pm; enjoy a host of outdoor sports by the sea, explore the Play Village and let loose your artistic flair at the free graffiti workshops.

Badminton on the beach will be returning to the event this year as well as other beach sports, a play village and arts workshops. It promises to be a great weekend of fun-filled activities. All of the events will take place along the prom, Eastern Shelter and on the beach in front of the shelter. 

Due to the success of previous years, more sports have been invited to attend this year including athletics and basketball. 


Rachel Shepherd, Active Young People Coordinator for the Vale of Glamorgan, commented,

"It is great to have Badminton Wales support our Sport, Art and Play Weekender through badminton on the beach. It will give families the opportunity to come along and have a go at badminton together."
