Sport for Women

What Happened on the Day?

Sporting stars and celebrities from all over Australia were there to demonstrate their talents and provide expert tuition for all. We had autograph sessions with the elite athletes, with Canberra United, Canberra Capitals and Touch Football Australia hosting tournaments throughout the day.

Lots of participants joined in the FREE Les Mills exercise classes that were offered, while some just came down, relaxed and soaked up the atmosphere. A great variety of food and refreshments were available all day.

The highlight of the day saw all of Canberra’s school children come together to perform a dance routine…and everyone joined in!

This was a free event, with an option of a gold coin donation going to our charity partner, Ovarian Cancer Australia.
