It was a fun packed family day on Sunday 24th June at Stroud District Council's fourth annual Generation Games.
130 people took part in the event, which is a celebration of sport and physical activity for people of all ages and abilities, at Stratford Park Leisure Centre in Stroud.
As the name suggests, the Generation Games is an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy together the thrill and satisfaction of physical activity, perhaps in a sport or skill they have never experienced before.
Councillor Karon Cross, executive member for health and well-being at Stroud District Council, said:
'The aim of the Generation Games is to introduce people in our district to new and exciting ways to stay active and improve their health. Being physically active has positive impacts - both physically and mentally - and the games are a great illustration of how exercise can be fun and enjoyable rather than being something to fear. It was a fun, family day.'
Participants took part this year in activities including Olympic events which will be taking place in London this summer such as tennis, hockey, trampolining, athletics and archery.
Participants also celebrated the Olympics through their team colours which this year represented the colours of the Olympic rings.
