THE next generation of ninja warriors have jumped, climbed and swung their way through a competition at Bibra Lake’s The Simulation Centre.

More than 50 participants aged six and older took part in the qualifying event in the hopes of earning selection to the Australian Ninja Games and Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association World Finals.

Competitors were asked to complete the course, which included quintuple steps, vaults, a pegboard, warped walls and a slackline, earning a final score based on their run time and points achieved on each obstacle.

The Simulation Centre’s Justine Mamootil said the event had been a big success, with 16 competitors earning the opportunity to be a part of October’s Australian Ninja Games.

She said the popularity of shows such as Australian Ninja Warrior made inclusion of a similar course at their centre a no-brainer.

“There are no other facilities in the southern area for families to access such a course,” she said.

“The growing population of young families who are keen to keep their children active, fit, whilst having fun was something we felt we needed to bring to the area, and it has proven to be extremely popular.”
