Editors Notice Board Hello and welcome to our November issue! I do love this time of year! The weather starts to warm up a little and we have those really lovely spring days. This is also my birthday month (21 again!) and we are heading to sunny Queensland for a week. Our boys are so excited. The older ones are loving that they get to miss out on some school and Ollie keeps telling everyone we are going on an aeroplane. They have never been to Queensland and I can’t wait to share the fun & sun with them and make some happy family memories. I don’t know about you, but our family life feels so busy and that there isn’t enough time each day to just be a family. That's what I’m excited about for our Queensland holiday - time to be together. We have an article about that on page 22 “Family Time..The Glue That Holds Families Together” and after reading it I realised our family needs some glue! I also loved the article written by Melinda Bito from Eco Toys about “The Benefits Barefoot Play” Kids love going barefoot outside; climbing, running and playing, and after reading this I have promised myself I stop my default reaction of yelling out “put your shoes on!” Because as Melinda says “kids are 100% washable!” This month we catch up with Andrew Vernes from Bundoora Action Indoors Sports and Bundoora Inflatable World and find out all about the centre and the fun that you can have there. And don’t think this is just for kids, adults can join in too! From birthday parties, team sports and training sessions, jumping around on the many Inflatables plus more! This centre has it all for non stop action. If you are looking for some fun this month then be sure to grab out your diary and mark down all the Festivals and Fetes we have throughout the mag and in our What’s On section. I hope you enjoy our latest issue and remember to check out our advertisers as there may be something to do or see or somewhere to go that may interest your family or someone your know! Have a great November and take care!!

LOCAL FUN FOR EVERYONE!! Bundoora Action Indoor Sports is a premier multisport stadium that is also home to the exciting Inflatable World playground on weekends and school holidays. The Centre is a hive of activity during the week. Both junior and senior teams play cricket, dodgeball, netball, soccer, bubble soccer and the newly reignited volleyball. Thursday night is a mixed social night where you can play a few different sports and socialise in the bar and café afterward. They also host amazing birthday parties and morning Mum's n Bub's Fitness Classes. With everyone leading such busy lives and children wanting to play an array of sports, parents love indoor sports because the games aren't as long at the outdoor games and have the bonus of being indoors away from inclement weather. The Café/Bar is also a hit for many parents, who get to socialise and further enhance the team spirit whilst still being able to

16

watch their children play. Andrew Vernes, the Centre Manager, is a keen supporter of local sporting clubs. “We have recently launched a new initiative for local Cricket Clubs – the “Most Team Spirited Player” award where coaches choose a player weekly and they are presented with a certificate and voucher to Inflatable World. In the off season, we see a lot of local junior cricket players join indoor teams to further enhance their cricket skills. We may even see some of those juniors play for Australia one day!” However, it's not just games, Action Indoor Sports have a vibrant, energetic and dedicated team that teach soccer and cricket skills. The Howzat Cricket Skills Class continues to grow and the Action FC Soccer Clinics are very popular including the recent school holiday program for both boys and girls.


Andrew Vernes not only supports local sporting clubs, but is also a very generous supporter of local schools, providing fundraising packages and even hosting school closure days. They also run a community disability program called “Bundoora Wickets� every Tuesday night. During the week many local schools use the stadium facilities to play indoor sports. The sports can be run by the Centre, however some schools have their

students design and run games themselves! Action Sports is not just for the kids! Senior sporting leagues are an integral part of the weekly agenda for adults whilst catering for corporate team bonding, private functions and end of year school and end of season club social events. bundooraactionindoorsports.com.au inflatableworldoz.com.au/stadiums/bundoora
