What’s on? Table tennis and gymnastics

Good morning SunLive readers and welcome back to Saturday.

The weather keeps on warming up, with another weekend of (mostly) great weather on the cards for us here in the Bay.

There's fine weather throughout the day and a chance of some showers later on, the high is climbing up to 19°c with a low of 12°c overnight.

It's a great day to get out and about and catch some sporting events that you may not always have the chance to watch on any given day.

Kicking off at Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre is the Table Tennis New Zealand Open Championships.

To open the event is the junior teams, but don't be fooled while they may be young they still bring some tough game.

The event is running all week long from today, so if you can get out there make sure you support the teams.

And in other sporting events a crowd favourite comes to a close today at the 2018 NZ Gymnastics Championships.

The event has been held all week at ASB BayPark arena, and today is it's final day.

SunLive photographer Nikki South captured some of the action earlier this week, so if you can't head along, make sure you give those a browse.

Plus there's a bunch of other cool activities kicking off around the city, check them out below.
