Are you Nerf or Nothin?

nerf Macclesfield will host the first official Nerf Championships in Britain on Saturday 2nd September, taking place in South Park from 11am-2pm.

Nerf blasters have soared in popularity over the last few years and now people in Macclesfield have a chance to have some great competitive fun on the last weekend of the summer holidays.

Navigating a giant inflatable obstacle course, participants will need to use all of their Nerf blasting skills to aim their foam darts at targets.

The fastest and highest scoring adults and teenagers will be invited back for the grand finale at 2pm where they will battle it out to become junior and adult Nerf Champions.

On the day, there will also be a range of free inflatable fun and family activities as well as stalls selling refreshments. Targets for the obstacle course have been created by local charity Macclesfield Community Artspace and all proceeds from the day will be donated to East Cheshire Hospice.

Helena Gowler, Community Engagement Officer for Macclesfield Town Council commented that ‘We are so excited to be hosting the first official Nerf Championships in Britain. Hasbro, the company behind Nerf blasters, have been really supportive and we are looking forward to seeing the summer holidays out in style with a day of free family fun’.
