The role of sports in community building


It is hard to imagine a human activity that does more for binding and building communities than sport; whether it is the World Cup in Cape Town, the Winter Olympics in Vancouver or the Tour de France, or the PGA.

Every Sunday morning in the summer we show up at Merkely Park as we have done for many, many years. We run around for an hour or more, have a beverage and laugh afterwards and then go home, already looking forward to the next Sunday. Many will agree that Sunday mornings is 'where its at'.
