PPT path back – update 08th of July

Posted on by

Guys a further update on the path back to playing.

On Monday the 06h of July Melbourne was laced in a 6 week lockdown ending at 11:59pm on Wednesday 19 August 2020. Based on that time frame we still have a window to run a short Winter season and plan to do so.

We already have competiton approvals in place and therefore plan to begin a shortened 5-6 week competition on Wednesday 26th of August 2020. Obviousy this may change (again) but the key point is that as soon as we can run we will run this season (even if that were to be a 2 week tournament in late September)

Details of registration for individuals and teams are detailed below.

PPT 2020 preseason program

Posted on by

In an effort to build the social touch community in the inner north of Melbourne, we are again running the PPT pre season program.

The program is free and open to all prospective players regardless of ability and will involve coaching and refereed scratch matches for unaligned players looking to start playing touch. And at the conclusion we will place individuals without a team into teams in our competition. All pre season nights will be held at JJ Holland Park, Kensington. Map here

We have set the rescheduled dates for our pre season program. Our ground in Kensington is not under the recent restrictions and we have the approvals to proceed with contact training from the relevant authorities for these dates. As such these dates are firm and the pre season nights will run in conjection with our SWTCH program which has already started:

Update the current program is suspended pending us finding a new ground as the postcode of our Winter home ground was added to the lockdown on Saturday the 04th of July. The season proper is still scheduled to go ahead after the lockdown ends on Wednesday 19 August 2020.

If you are an individual looking to be placed please register as as individual player so we have you on file.
