Children are also protagonists

There is also the usual equipped area in Piazza Puccini used for “Streetgames for children” where around 800 children from Grest and summer centers will be able to try their hand at sessions of hockey, football for the blind, boxing, beach volleyball, Aikido or padel, without forgetting dog and road training.

«A very heartfelt event, especially in view of the Hockey World Cup that Novara, “ City of Sport 2025”, will host in September and to which, in the meantime, it pays homage with the installation of a stand and an ad hoc rink» he recalled the sports councilor Ivan De Grandis.

“Formid@bile”

On Wednesday 26 June (7-8pm), the inclusive project “Formid@bile” will take to the field, which will see able-bodied and disabled athletes competing simultaneously in sitting volleyball and blind football activities, in the 60 meter sprint and in tennis matches.
