Mini-games held at Walsall extra care scheme

Residents at a Housing 21 extra care housing scheme in Walsall have been so inspired by the summer of sport that they decided to hold their own mini-games event.

The event, at Winehala Court in Willenhall, even began with a wheelchair torch relay. This was followed by a variety of whacky activities including a Zimmer frame race, archery, badminton, a mini decathlon and a lap of honour around the court.

Denise Guest, Housing 21 Court Manager said: “The day was a massive triumph. Everyone who took part really threw themselves into the occasion and enjoyed themselves.”

Winehala Court is one of several Housing 21 schemes across the country to have embraced the spirit of the real Olympic games.
