An ADF Families Event: My Dad and me Ball Games, Townsville

by Defence Member and Family Support (DMFS)

NOTE: This event is only for Australian Defence Force families.

ADF Dads and kids in Townsville are invited to the July ‘My Dad and Me’ event.

This month it’s going to be an active, outdoor morning with ball games including table tennis, basketball, tennis and footy.

With a range of outdoor ball games, as well as the playground to keep the kids busy, they’ll exert lots of energy, so don’t forget to bring water bottles, hats and sunscreen.

As always, tea and coffee will be available in the Geckos kitchen, and feel free to bring your own morning tea and healthy snacks for the kids.

And don’t forget, ‘My Dad and me’ is a mum-free zone, so give her the morning off.

Registration closes 29 July unless the event is fully booked earlier.
