Get the kids involved in a new sport this winter

Whether your children are netball enthusiasts, rugby fanatics or are just curious to learn more about a new sport, you'll find there are plenty of opportunities on the Gold Coast to support your family's active lifestyle.

If you are considering a Surfers Paradise property purchase or you have recently bought real estate in the area, you won't want to miss upcoming sporting carnivals that are designed to encourage young people to experience the thrill and sportsmanship of netball or rugby.

Moving can be challenging for teens, but a sports club can offer them the chance to pursue an active lifestyle and make some new friends.

From July 5 to 12, the Gold Coast Rugby and Netball Carnivals will bring together netball and rugby teams of school-aged youth for a fun and competitive week of play. All skill levels are welcome, from school teams to netball and rugby clubs.

All netball events will be hosted at the Southport Carrara Netball Association, while the rugby games will take place at Runaway Bay's Sports Super Centre.

The events promises to be exciting for spectators, with matches scheduled throughout the week. Going to a game can be a great family day out, and an excellent way to learn more about a new sport.
