Touch turns social with sportspark lights out
TOUCH: While the regular Whitsunday Touch season is currently on hold, games are still being played at the Whitsunday Sportspark on Monday night.
The lights at the sportspark were damaged during Cyclone Debbie and until they are fixed, social touch will be running from 5pm until dark every Monday night – including Easter Monday.
Whitsunday Touch secretary Justin Butler said they were encouraging all players, young and old, registered or not, to come and play.
“Come on down and have a run,” he said.
“Adults, kids, we’ll run as many games as we can get, depending on the numbers. We’ll have a social run around.
“A lot of other sports are not being played at the moment and parents might want to bring their kids down while other sports can’t be played. If they want to, they can bring their kids for a run of touch footy.”
Butler said they hoped to have the sportspark lights up and running in the next few weeks.
“If we can turn the lights on and they turn up to a certain level, we’ll get straight back into proper games,” he said.
