Space Hopper Racing
You all know what a space hopper looks like – a big colourful bouncy ball with funny ear-like handles and a silly grinning face painted on. Kids love them, adults pretend they don’t love them, but secretly play on them the first chance they get… Well now, thanks to the World Alternative Games, you’ll have a chance to play on one to your heart’s content in Space Hopper Racing! The rules are simple – you must bounce along a marked course and whoever reaches the finish first, wins! There will be heats, and the ultimate winner will be the individual who beats off all competition to finish first every time! Cue grass-stained knees, a few bruises and grazes and lots of fun! Children and adults are welcome to join in.
The Space Hopper Rave event is being held in Ysgol Dôlafon Primary School on Sunday 14th August from 11.15am.
