Introducing petanque, lawn bowling and woodball at the Occupy Beach Street 17 Nov 2013

With more crowd visiting the Penang State Sports Council booth at the Occupy Beach Street event , more is in store for the event every Sunday.

Week three saw a larger crowd than the previous week as they were treated not only sports demonstration but also a chance free try outs.

To many, it was interesting to learn of the sport of petangue, lawn bowling and woodball as these sports are not commonly played in the country.

Seeing how easy it was to learn the sport, many took a go at learning basic petangue and woodball techniques under the supervision of these sports coaches.

Penang State Sports Council director Frederick Tan said that it was very encouraging to see the public participate in the sports.

This could spark the interest in people to learn about the sports and hopefully pick up the sports.

We always welcome the community to learn more sports especially if it involves families and young children,” said Tan.

He said that the following will be more interesting because the Council will not only present sports demonstration but also throw in talks and free consultation on topics in sports science.

People visiting the Occupy Beach Street event on 24 Nov will be treated with fencing, silambam and cycling demonstration at 8.00 am and 10.30 am.

There will also be free 15-minute talks each on sports diet and sports injury at 9.00 am followed by free consultation for the public on the same topics.

对于出席观赏的公众来说,上周日的地掷球,木球及草地保龄球的展出是极新鲜及令人感兴趣的体育项目,除了在场有各教练的介绍及示范各项球类的打法,更有机会在他们的指导下让在场者亲身赏试上述球类的打法技术,使到他们对这些新流行的体育项目有所认识。

槟州体育理事会总监陈德安在受访时表示感到欣慰,能够看到有这么多公众人士对这些球类感兴趣,这将给这些尚未成为热门的体育项目带来很好的发展潜能。

他补充说:这些新鲜的球类都适合大众,男女老少皆可以容易上手及家庭成员可一起参与的有趣球类。
