Participate in free sporting activities, from gymnastics to soccer, cricket and aquatic exercise to lawn bowls, sailing and many more at the Casey All Abilities Sports Carnival from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 October 2012.

‘Participants will get to enjoy local sporting and leisure facilities and support from community sporting clubs at locations across the municipality.
‘And the best thing is these local facilities and clubs provide ongoing opportunities for people of all abilities beyond the carnival’.
If you would like to meet new people and have fun trying new sports close to home, get registered for the Casey All Abilities Sports Carnival.
Registration is required to participate. Phone the City of Casey Customer Service on 9705 5200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
