The popular annual Armadale Multisport Day will return to Gwynne Park Oval this month, providing children and young people an opportunity to try six different sports for free.

Six to 18 year olds are invited to participate in a round-robin style event and try their hand at football, soccer, hockey, basketball, cricket and rugby from 2 to 6pm on Thursday 24 January.
