Active Monash Month - park activities

Active Monash Month is back and this year we're excited to have something for everyone! Join us for FREE recreational and physical activities across the month of November.

Active Monash Month is designed to help the local community break down barriers to physical activity.

We've put together a calendar of activities and opportunities to increase your physical movement in an accessible and easy way, no matter your age or ability.

Whether you love to walk, run, ride, dance, meditate, or play a sport, get moving and participate your way!

The activities run from Sunday 1 November to Monday 30 November 2020.

Please note: Due to changing restrictions, the Parkrun activity listed in the calendar is not running this year. Instead, we recommend you use this opportunity to complete a 5km run, walk or ride in any of our amazing reserves.

Sport inspired activities

Basketball 21 - Rules

The game is won by the player who accumulates exactly 21 points. If a player goes over 21 points, their score is reduced to 11 points. To avoid going over 21, players may choose to miss a free throw intentionally. In this instance, a free throw must hit the rim to be legal. 

Ring locations

Tennis Social Round Robin - Rules

A round robin is a grouping of players in which each player must play every other player in the group. The format can be used with any number of participants over two. According to the U.S. Tennis Association, when six or more players are entered in a tournament, they may be divided into multiple round-robin groups.
