One way to become part of a hooping community is to come along to the In2Hula HoopJam gatherings in Christchurch. Originally initiated by Katrina Muir, these get-togethers are held on the last Sunday of each month at the Botanic Gardens in Hagley Park. We decided we would hoop in the new year with an extra gathering for 2017 on New Year’s Day last Sunday. The weather beamed on us, actually it got a bit too hot for some so luckily there was shade to retreat to nearby and the paddling pool for kids to cool off in. There was a significant gathering of hoopers, both more experienced and beginners wanting to give it a go, and, as often happens, many people who were visiting the playground for other reasons also joined in.
The In2Hula HoopJams are a friendly, relaxed space to enjoy some fun activity, meet other hoopers and grow your hula hooping skills. We welcome people of all ages and abilities.
Hoopy New Year!
