Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

You may recognise it from school as Unihoc or Indoor Hockey.

Floorball is a team event. It is fast paced with lots of short sprint running and breaks in between. It is fun to play and very easy to learn. If you have played Field Hockey, Tennis, Football or any other ball sport, you will quickly pick up Floorball as well. What is even better is the fact that it is played indoors. Rain or shine…you can play Floorball.

We play twice a week and the 2020 season has now started up.

Wednesday nights we play from 7:30pm till about 8:45pm and it is for the older teens, youth and adults.

Sunday afternoons we have children and younger teens from age about 6 and upwards playing from 4:00pm until about 5:15pm….

Cost of playing is $2.00 for those aged 17 or younger. Those aged 18 and older pay $5.00 per session.

We have equipment in the form of balls and sticks to play with so all you need is t-shirt, shorts and indoor sports shoes.

If you want to know more about Floorball, please contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Cheers

Ole, Daren & Clint

Drury Floorball

Playing Venue:
Manna Park Community Church
