Serving up Soccer

The Brightwater Commons in Randburg has come up with a few ideas to keep active children busy and frustrated parents calm during the World Cup. With the long school holidays approaching it is an excellent idea to keep your finger on the pulse of things you can do with your children and we’d like to make your job a little bit easier.

Keeping with the phenomenal spirit of the 2010 World Cup, Brightwater Commons will be hosting a number of activities and events that will be entertaining from 11 June to 11 July 2010. And to use a soccer reference the good times will kick off at 12h00 on Friday 11 June with an African Tribal Show. Get into a spirit of Africa with this colourful extravaganza featuring a Marimba band, traditional singers, dancers and the soulful beat of African drumming.

An ideal family shopping destination the Brightwater Commons theme for June and July is “Serving up Soccer” and in keeping with this theme they have arranged over 40 television screens on and around the eateries in the centre. So you will have plenty of opportunity to keep with the latest scores and action while relaxing with family and friends.

The Streetvains Soccer and Sports Court will be a highlight over this period and is open daily from 10h30 to 18h00. No matter what your age you will have a blast here as you can put your soccer skills to the test in both tournaments and skills competitions on the grass area. Something that is very unique and exciting is the stand were you will be able to create your own Makarabas. If you don’t know what a Makaraba is let me tell you – uniquely sculptured and decorated hard hat that is worn with pride and are truly South African. Also available will be face painting (have yours painted in your favourite team colours – mine will be green and gold! Proudly South African!) and other activities will be rugby, table tennis, darts and volley ball.

If your children are aged between 3 and 12 years a variety of jumping castles and inflatables will ensure your young ones have tons of fun. This area will be open from 10h00 to 17h30 daily and costs R25 per half hour of playtime. The area will include a 5 metre high slide, an obstacle course and a kiddie’s boxing ring and a number of other things.

On Saturday 12 June Greece will play their first match and Brightwater Commons will be hosting a Greek Day celebration from 11h00 to 16h00 in the centres promotions court. Your children can take part in shot-put, long-jump, egg and spoon races, wrestling and potato sack races or involve themselves in one of the creative workshops.

For some fun activities to keep both you and your children entertained make sure you stop by for a few hours at the Brightwater Commons, make sure you free up your day because will all of this activity you might just find yourself there all day!
