Fresh touch footy season is ready to get underway

WEDNESDAY night social touch football is back for a fresh season and with grading games complete Bulldog Park is set to get back into the swing of things.

The 23-week season began last night with the first draw of the season.

Club president Rachel de Jonge said the game had a massive following everywhere and had always been popular in Chinchilla but this season was shaping up as one of the biggest yet.

"It's a game that's loved by so many because it's a great team atmosphere and it's family friendly,” de Jonge said.

"We have mums and dads playing with their kids in teams and they all have a tonne of fun.

"And if you can come out here and have fun, it always makes you want to come back, which is why we see such a big return year after year.

FRESH SEASON: Seraphina Dickman, Nicola Watson, Emma Watson, Blade Nelson, Jed Zerk, Max Hart, Kyan Ferguson and Cam Rollings are keen to get back into the action down at Bulldog Park for this year's Chinchilla touch football season.

The club caters for a lot of different ages and abilities, with an under-12s competition on Wednesday afternoons ahead of the mixed senior fixtures in the evenings.

Most teams are already full but there are a handful seeking extra players.
