Watch champs de­fend ti­tles

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Need ideas for a fam­ily day out? Bring the fam­ily along to Toko­roa Me­mo­rial Sports Grounds, Mos­sop Rd this week­end and watch the Polocrosse na­tional club cham­pi­onships.

Polocrosse, also known as ‘‘the king of the one horse sports’’ is a mix­ture of polo, lacrosse and net­ball. Six play­ers in two teams, of three, called ‘‘chukkas’’ take turns on the field to com­pete against an­other team. The win­ners are the team who scores the most goals at the end of the match.

The Roke and Rockwood tro­phies are won with knock­out games, un­til two teams come to­gether in the fi­nal.

New Zealand’s best play­ers will be com­pet­ing for the Roke and Rockwood at the na­tional club cham­pi­onships.

Come along and sup­port Pu­taruru-Ti­rau as they de­fend their ti­tles for both tro­phies for the 10th con­sec­u­tive year.

En­try is free. Bar­be­cue food and cold drinks will be avail­able to buy. Fi­nals will be played from lunchtime on Sun­day.

WELL BACKED: Coun­try mu­sic is alive and well in Pu­taruru with a re­cent event rais­ing funds for the Pu­taruru Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade.
