Emphasis on fun in sports tourney

The end of school is not far away and for many junior secondary school pupils, classes have got out early - well for this week, anyway.

A junior sport tournament week is taking place in Dunedin and as it rolls in at this time of year it is not too serious. There is an emphasis on fun and getting along.

Luckily most of the sports have been scheduled for under the roof at the Edgar Centre, though golf was supposed to be played at the St Clair course. It was cancelled because of the weather.

Sports being played include handball, three-on-three basketball, volleyball, dodge ball, Ki O Rahi and rubbish-tin cricket.

That sort of cricket is a play on backyard cricket with rules around tip and run, being out caught through the one-hand-and-one-bounce rule, and there is no lbw.

Sports are scheduled to go right through the week.
