With teams representing affiliates such as Penrith, Parramatta, Cronulla, Easts, Wollongong and Central Coast as well as everywhere in between, Vawdon Cup puts you up against some of the best players in the Country.
Games are played throughout the Sydney Metropolitan area catering for Open, Senior and Youth divisions. The competition normally has 12 rounds and a final series.
Games are played weekly on a Friday night with two Sunday double headers. The competition is held from late July until October.
