Touch turns so­cial with sportspark lights out

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.
