It’s that time of year again for the Inverell Polocrosse Club to begin their training for the 2017 season.
For some members of the club, training has been well under way in preparation for several representative events in the coming months.
Emily Gentry will play alongside other NSW intermediate players in the Muswellbrook Show team against a rival Queensland side.
This event not only is a representative opportunity for the players but an excellent showcase of the polocrosse. The club wishes her the best of luck.
Intermediate players Tom O’Brien and Cody Woodward will begin their season representing New South Wales in the Barastoc Cup to be held at Morgan Park in Warwick.
This State of Origin-inspired competition always brings the best of the states together to compete for the title.
They will play three games over the weekend and the club wishes them the best of luck.
These three players are also a part of an under 21 team heading to New Zealand to compete in the Trans-Tasman Competition.
They will compete against a rival New Zealand team over a weekend alongside other players from around New South Wales.
It will be a fantastic opportunity for the three players to showcase their skills internationally and the club is very proud of their achievements.
This Sunday, February 12, the club will hold a fundraising event at the Inverell Golf Club. Everyone is welcome to attend the three-person Ambrose event.
Shotgun start at 10am. Cost is $30 per team, which includes a barbecue lunch.
Ladies teams are welcome, and there are great prizes for all including nearest the pin and longest drive. The club would like to thank their sponsors for making this fun day possible to run yet again.
Club training days will commence later on in the month at the Polocrosse fields at Rob Roy.
The club will hold a working bee, barbecue lunch and induction day on Sunday, February 19 to prepare the fields for practice.
All new members will be welcome to attend. Please call club secretary Leonie Buchan for more information about the club or the fundraiser on 0427 255 825.
