A review of Thursdays 2023-24 and what we have coming up

Thursdays 2023-24

I hope you are having a good off season, after a months break from touch I thought I’d take a chance to reflect on the season that was.

The weather was perfect for our final two nights with both mens grand finals and 2 out of 3 mixed grand finals being try for try and it was also great to see record numbers at the GNH afterwards for the end of season celebration. There are some great photos on the website of our final nights (not just GF teams).

On the fields in week 15 including team shots of Lobster Corgi Storm, Patchwork, The Blues, The Fantails, The Hooners, Thursday Referees, and Turtles and mens presentations

And at the Great Northern Hotel in week 16, featuring RuPauls Tag Race, Tagliatelle, The Hooners, The Parrots, Thursday Referees, and Touch Potatoes:

Ive also put together a gallery of all 30 teams that participated here

This gallery links through to an archive of photos for your team going back through the past seasons. Check it out.

Anyway thanks for being part of our Summer season, as someone who organises a team I know it can be challenging but rewarding. There were some issue with field markings and not everyone understood the expectations of membership but overall a success I think

But there is no point blowing smoke up our own backside. So if there is anything that you or your teammates think we can improve upon or any feedback we want to know. Email or call is fine or call and an anonymous feedback form here:

We are a competition that is run for and by its members (which includes the current players and referees). I am a huge believer in constructive criticism, so please pass it on to your teammates and don’t hold back.

Now onto the future:

SWITCH Autumn 2024

The second module of our women’s program SWITCH starts on the 10th of April. The free program teaches basic fitness, ball skills and an introduction to game play with the emphasis on having fun in what we believe is the best game. We supply everything, all participants need to bring is their boots. More info and rego here:

Please circulate to the women in your team or the women in your life as it is an amazing program.

Winter 2024

Regos are open for our Winter 2024 season, all the details are on the website:

Three important things though

If you have not yet registered, start rallying troops. Best not to leave this to the last moment. If you are not entering a team but have players who are still keen to stay involved please put them in touch with me and I´ll find them a home. This is important as we are a touch community here in the inner north.If you are considering entering a team and need extra players let me know and I’ll send some through (I have a long list already). 

If I don’t see you over then hopefully see you over Summer as we fire up the BBQ in Summer 2024-25 back in Princes Park.
