HUNDREDS of families, neighbours and friends took part in the first event of this year's nationwide community games on Sunday, playing sepak takraw, badminton and other sports.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong launched the Community Games and Community Sports Festival at Anchorvale Community Club.

He joined in a mass workout and brisk walk with 2,500 residents, flagged off a dragon boat race and opened Anchorvale's new water sports centre.

He also gamely played a short table tennis friendly match with 10-year-old Charis Pang, and tried a round of mini-archery.
