Haven’t been exercising much from getting cooped up at home? Get your fitness back on track and stay active with your family at Decathlon Sports Fest 2021. In partnership with Sport Singapore, Decathlon Singapore brings us its first ever Virtual Sports Carnival from 24 July to 8 August. Grab your kids along to discover and participate in up to 10 different sports with fun challenges to complete (safely and virtually).
What’s more, Decathlon will be supporting SportCares – an initiative by Sport Singapore – in hopes of spreading love through sports this coming month. As such, Decathlon will be handing out 30 free tickets to enable youths from low-income families to discover the love for sports at Decathlon Sports Fest 2021.
To encourage Singaporeans to keep active, Decathlon has created 10 beginner-friendly sporting challenges that would be sure to get you up on your feet while staying safe during this unprecedented time.
Here are the rules: start with the intention to try a new sport, document your experience, complete as many challenges as you can within the stipulated time frame and be rewarded with prizes after.
