Skills and precision in Central Park

Impressive gymnastics and martial arts displays drew crowds of visitors to Boston's Central Park as the warm summer sun fought back the seasonal rain clouds.

This year's Family Fun Community Sports Day welcomed representatives from local sports and activity clubs, to showcase their skills and encourage prospective new members. artsNK in Partnership with Transported, provided instructed try-out sessions on their aerial rig whilst TJ Gymnastics entertained the crowds with elaborate displays of group dance routines and acrobatics.

Amy O'Sullivan of artsNK said "We have been constantly busy all day, with everybody trying the hoops and silk. Many of the children have returned 3 or 4 times and the gymnasts from TJ Gymnastics have been very keen to have a go".

Following the Gymnastics display, Kuk Sool Won martial arts club performed a striking group display of techniques and skills and then paired off to demonstrate a variety of defensive manoeuvres.

Visitors also enjoyed different stalls including golf and face painting activities.

Representing the hosts, Boston Borough Council, Fran Taylor said "today's another success with fantastic gymnastic displays, and the aerial rig has proved very popular. Every club here brings something to the community and it's great to encourage activity".
