7:00pm Monday 12th August 2013 in News
HUNDREDS of visitors watched on as urban sports stars showed off their skills.
The SX Urban Games took place outside Leisure World, in Cowdray Avenue yesterday.
It included displays by dance troops, freerunners and basketball freestylers, while the public was also encouraged to give about 40 urban sports a go.
“Word really seemed to get around Colchester that we were in the town,” said organiser Helen O’Halloran.
“People have seen so much of the urban sports of TV and I think it’s really interested people so they were keen to see what was going on.”
Street dance groups Nu Flow and SOS Street Dance gave a number of performances, while a DJ and MC provided the soundtrack for the day.
Mrs O’Halloran added: “Urban games are attracting a lot of interest all over the county, and long may that continue.”
