Park Play 

What is ParkPlay?

 

ParkPlay is a simple idea – it’s an event with fun and games every Saturday in your local park

It’s an event where we can #MeetMovePlay together

 

Who is ParkPlay for?

 

ParkPlay is for Everyone!

ParkPlay is a completely free event and it’s perfect for adults and children alike. There’s no age limit or fitness requirement.

Just turn up and there’ll be games and activities everyone can play.

 

What happens at ParkPlay?

 

Every ParkPlay starts with a smile and a welcome briefing explaining the games we’ll play.

After a fun warm up you can choose what to play. There’ll be a range of games for example, dodgeball, frisbee, scavenger hunts, quick cricket and many more.

Each game lasts around 15 minutes and you can choose to play or cheer on the other ParkPlayers.

 

What do I need to bring?

Just bring yourself!

Please come in clothes you can move in, trainers or similar and perhaps a jumper or jacket (in case the weather doesn’t play ball).

 

ParkPlay is free? What’s the catch?

 

There isn’t one. We want to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the power of play, and remove barriers (like cost) to doing so.

Our vision is to use play to deliver positive experiences that encourage more people to be active, to change perceptions of physical activity and to be the most welcoming and inclusive community in the country.

We’re also very fortunate to have received the backing of Sport England who are helping to fund our operations and allow ParkPlay to be free, forever.

 

Anything else I need to know?

 

ParkPlay’s motto is minimal rules, maximum fun, but there are just a few things you need to know.

Everyone, including children, must have registered to play. You only need to register once here on the website.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and remain within sight at all times while at ParkPlay.

You can play at your own pace and there is no pressure to do more than you want, but you’re taking part at your own risk.

We’re working hard to create a safe environment for everyone – please read our Covid protocols and follow the directions of the PlayLeader.

Please lend a hand. ParkPlay is mainly run by volunteers from the community, so please chip in when you can and be a PlayMaker.
