Touch tour­na­ment open to all

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

TOUCH football play­ers from across Queens­land will con­verge on the Whit­sun­day Sports Park for the Whit­sun­day Touch gala day on Satur­day, Septem­ber 14.

Last year’s event saw teams come from across the Whit­sun­days, in­clud­ing the Whit­sun­day is­lands and this year’s com­pe­ti­tion looks set to at­tract the best teams from Mackay and Townsville.

Whit­sun­day Touch As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Mark Beale is ex­pect­ing this year’s tour­na­ment to be the big­gest yet and said nom­i­na­tions are wel­come right up un­til Septem­ber 12.

“It’s a good op­por­tu­nity for our lo­cal teams to test them­selves against the best in North Queens­land,” he said.

“Last year we just had teams from the main­land and the is­lands so it will be big­ger and bet­ter this year with play­ers com­ing from right around North Queens­land.

Beale said any­one look­ing to get in­volved in the lo­cal Mon­day night com­pe­ti­tion or want­ing to put a team to­gether for gala day should email bernard.woods@ray­white.com, go to the club’s Face­book page at www.face­book.com/Whit­sun­day Touch or con­tact Bernard Woods on 0429 470 017.

STRONG RE­TURN: Proser­pine ten­nis ju­nior Kim­berly Azul play­ing in Ing­ham on the week­end.
