Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - DWAYNE BAR­LOW

Mata­mata Swifts’ an­nual sum­mer 5-a-side soc­cer tour­na­ment is set to kick off, with the club hope­ful of in­creased in­volve­ment across all grades.

An an­nual fix­ture on the lo­cal so­cial sports cal­en­dar, sum­mer 5-a-side soc­cer is pri­mar­ily aimed at the so­cial or busi­ness house sports per­son, with play­ers aged from 12 and above, as well as both sexes, en­cour­aged to get in­volved.

Sum­mer 5-a-side or­gan­iser, Dwayne Bar­low, is keen to get more busi­ness teams in­volved this sum­mer.

‘‘Yes, def­i­nitely. We reckon 5-a-side is the ideal so­cial sum­mer sport for work mates to get to­gether out­side the reg­u­lar work­ing day, have a bit of fun as a group while get­ting in some de­cent ex­er­cise,’’ says Bar­low.

‘‘Teams get two games ev­ery Thurs­day evening, so play­ers get a solid work­out, with a nice lit­tle break in be­tween.’’

Sum­mer 5-a-side soc­cer be­gins on Septem­ber 29. Teams can en­ter in the com­pet­i­tive A grade or the so­cial busi­ness house grade. The club has a reg­is­tra­tion evening at the Mata­mata Do­main clu­b­rooms Septem­ber 15, start­ing at 7pm. Visit: www.mata­ 5-a-side
