WARATAHS Soccer Club is hoping to grow its Women’s Twilight Soccer Competition this year.
The competition will kick-off for its second season on November 12, and organisers are hoping to welcome a few new teams.
There are already four sides signed up, matching last year’s numbers.
“We’d like at least six this year,” organiser Robyn Churchland said. “We’ve got four already and it would be great to get a couple more.”
The women’s competition is open to all abilities and those who are new to the sport are mentored by more experienced players.
It also has a strong social aspect.
“It’s a good opportunity for people who haven’t played before to try it,” player Mel Renike said.
Churchland hoped the competition might attract a few high school sides.
“Some school girls play a few games a year for their school,” Churchland said. “It would be good if schools put in a side so the girls could get a feel for the game before they play in their school competitions.”
The games are seven-a-side and played on smaller fields.
Players wear joggers and don’t need shinpads.
Last year’s winners, the Old Girls, will be back and they’re looking forward to getting back on the field.
Do they plan to defend their title?
“We’ll try,” Renike said.
“We don’t try very hard,” teammate Jenny Whiley laughed.
Nomination forms and rules are available from the Waratah Sports Club. Nominations close on Friday, November 1.
