Almost 10,000 bowling games given to children for free this summer.
Free Summer Bowling - An Eden Leisure initiative to Fight Child Obesity
The Eden SuperBowl’s Free Summer Bowling programme has come to a close after 3 successful and enjoyable months. This year, the programme saw over 3800 children, aged between 5 and 16, sign up to receive two free games every day throughout summer. With 9948 games played in total, the programme of free games has been valued at €57,201.
At the end of September, Eden Superbowl also organised an end of summer tournament, allowing children to compete amongst their friends they made during the programme. Taking into consideration different ages, all contestants were split up into 4 categories allowing for 4 winners. From the Imps groups, we had Tamara winning on behalf of the girls and Jacob winning on behalf of the boys. For the Pixies groups, Celianne bowled the winning score for the girls and Nicolai for the boys.
Eden Leisure Group’s Director of Operations, Simon De Cesare stated, “Once again, we have closed off the programme with incredible feedback. From the launch party on 4th July, right until the end of summer, Eden SuperBowl was filled with happy and active children, which is what this initiative is all about.”
The intention of this initiative is to get children moving and active. Child obesity continues to be a prevalent problem here in Malta, with statistics continuing to prove the seriousness of this issue and therefore it is crucial that a long term solution is found for this long term problem. The Free Summer Bowling Club is the Eden Leisure Group’s way of contributing to this, by encouraging children to keep active. It is also important to show kids that exercise can be as fun and sociable. By providing the Maltese with such an opportunity, Eden Leisure hope to continue raising awareness as well as provide support to those who find themselves battling issues related to obesity.
