This is a great event and a great weekend. The spirit of competition is there, but the camaraderie between the contestants is what really makes SportsFest worthwhile. They award prizes and announce a winner, but there are really no losers at SportsFest.
Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
From 28th September to 1st October, young adults between the ages of 16 and 28 will converge on Australind, Bunbury, and Eaton WA for SportsFest 2012. Around 40 Baptist churches from all over Western Australia will send teams to compete in a full range of sports. The main event venue is the Leschenault Leisure Centre in Australind.
A partial list of sports includes Australian Rules Football, Badminton, Bocce, Ten Pin Bowling, Cricket, Darts, Beach Volleyball, Netball, Tennis, Archery, Basketball, Touch Rugby, Squash, Ultimate Frisbee, Scrabble, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Wally Ball, Water Polo, Softball, and many more.
SportsFest 2012 is drug and alcohol free, and is run by the Baptist Churches Western Australia as a way for like-minded people to compete in sports in an atmosphere of goodwill and sportsmanship. SportsFest was first contested in 1998, with Parkerville finishing in first place. In 2004, it was split into two divisions: Main Competition and Small Church.
In thirteen years of competition, Claremont has won nine times, but winning and losing is secondary to the event itself. The event also features plenty of ministry, and an attentive audience. Many participants have been cited as having made “significant faith decisions” while at the event in previous years. Each year has a theme, and this year’s theme is, “jPod: Who are you listening to?”
Other sponsors include Baptist Financial Services, Kytec Group, Baptist World Aid Australia, Australian Christians, and Makit Hardware.
Volunteers are still needed for the event. The areas of need listed on the volunteer application include umpires, coordinators, scorers, setup and pack up team, hospitality team, and first aid. All volunteers over the age of 18 must provide a Working with Children card. For more information or for a volunteer application, you can visit the SportsFest website here: http://www.sportsfest.org.au.
Imagepak will put their screen printing skills to good use for the event as team clothing supplier and sponsor.
Scott Eaton, owner of Imagepak, is looking forward to the weekend: “This is a great event and a great weekend. The spirit of competition is there, but the camaraderie between the contestants is what really makes SportsFest worthwhile. They award prizes and announce a winner, but there are really no losers at SportsFest.”
Eaton continued, “I’ve been to a few sporting events in my day, but I don’t remember any that are as uplifting as SportsFest. It’s something that’s really difficult to describe to someone who hasn’t been there and witnessed it firsthand.”
