2018 #HornetsChamps - Wrap Up & Results

When in drought, play touch football.

Congratulations and thank you to all participants, coaching staff, officials, volunteers and parents who took part in this weekend’s Hornets Championships.

While the weather put on a show, the rain was no deterrent for the extreme quality of games that were played over the weekend at the Tomaree Sports Complex. With 60 teams, 200+ games, 80 referees and so many more parents and spectators – this was one of the best Hornets Chamionships ever. 

A special mention to the crew behind the scenes who spend weeks on end preparing the event, Karen Davies does a brilliant job putting on such a great event. Similar, the effort of Nelson Bay Touch was outstanding, and dually deserve acknowledgement for their hard work.
