About Manly Touch
Manly Warringah Touch Association Inc. (MWTA / Manly Touch) provides one of the largest touch football competitions in Australia catering for male and female participants from 7-70 years of age. We are a not-for-profit organisation, established in 1974 with currently around 4,000 active junior and senior playing members.
Based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney participants compete in local junior and senior competitions and at various representative tournaments.
Participants can play in mens, womens, or mixed gender teams, and of any age or sporting ability. During the winter months we run Monday night and Sunday morning competitions and in the summer months run competitions on Monday, Thursday and Friday nights and Sunday mornings. Our local competitions are competitive but with an overarching emphasis on the social and fun aspect of playing touch footy in a community engaged atmosphere.
Players, coaches, officials and volunteers from all parts of the local community participate and contribute to Manly Touch. However, there are many others from outside the Manly-Warringah area who often travel to be part of this great Club.
Since its inception, Manly Touch has continually grown to be one of Australia’s strongest and most successful touch football associations. In recent times, Manly Touch have made significant improvements in the areas of grassroots participation, player development, technical development, community engagement and representative performance. This was recognised recently when Manly Touch was awarded the ‘Affiliate of Year for 2016/17’ at the 2017 NSW Touch Association (NSWTA) Blues Awards. This is the second year in a row Manly Touch have won this award.
Our Junior competition is the largest local touch football competition held in Australia with 259 teams registered and is now operating at full capacity.
Manly Touch is also one of Australia’s most successful representative clubs, being the current NSWTA Junior and Senior State Cup Club Champions.
