Last chance to nominate for services club summer touch competition

Moree’s popular summer mixed touch football competition will begin next Tuesday, October 17.

Each year Moree Services Club Touch Football see around 16 teams nominate for the summer season which runs right up until Easter.

The committee are still accepting individual and team nominations.

Kevin Rigby said the social competition would be perfect for someone new to town, or anyone looking to get involved in a new sport over the summer.

“The competition kicks off next Tuesday and runs until the week before Christmas. We’ll have a little break for the holidays and get back into it with the finals landing just before Easter time next year,” he said.

Being a mixed competition, the rules state there is to be a maximum of four males on the field and a minimum of one female on the field per team.

Each game runs for 40 minutes with the first game starting at 6pm each Tuesday at the Services Club oval.

“Each player must be a member of the Moree and District Services Club. Players just need to visit the office to complete a membership form, or renew their membership,” he said.

The committee were also seeking feedback on Facebook regarding the possibility of grading the summer competition, receiving positive responses for the grading system.
