“In our quest to get more children and young people active, what better way than to invite children and young people to a weekly Nerf club?

"Active Future has been established to increase the likelihood of lifelong participation in movement.

"What we know is that by aged 16, 80% of children and young people have left movement and sport never to return again.

“We already know that children and young people love taking part in Nerf and we also know that the movement at our events is huge.

"Children can come and take part in weekly battles and who knows, may be able to compete against other areas where clubs are running.

“So whether playing Speed Battles, Solos or Protect the President, we will have a blast on a weekly basis in Doncaster.”

Organisers are awaiting confirmation from other venues to extend the clubs.

What is Nerf?

The toy brand was formed by Parker Brothers and currently owned by Hasbro.

Most of its toys are a variety of foam-based weaponry, with other Nerf products including balls for sports such as American football, basketball, and baseball.

Their best known toys are their dart guns (referred to by Hasbro as "blasters") that shoot ammunition made from "Nerf foam" (partially reticulated polyether type polyurethane foam).

Their primary slogan, introduced in the 1990s, is "It's Nerf or Nothin'!".

Nerf issued the first foam dart blaster in 1992. Over the years, Nerf has continued to expand the line, adding new looks to existing products, with later lines of Nerf products ranging from sport balls and foam dart blasters to video games and accessories.
