Joining a sporting team is one of the best ways to get active and have fun at the same time. These are a few of the sports played locally. Use the reply box, or contact us to tell us about more.
Bowls: Linda Brooks bowls for fun and exercise. ”Bowling is excercise I do regularly not seriously. Good exercise, good companionship and lots of fun”. You don’t need a lot of experience to have fun with the game, and “barefoot bowls” has a relaxed dress code so you can try it out before investing in the gear!
Tennis: Wally Rudder plays tennis every Friday morning. “Get out there and do it and enjoy it while you do it”, he says.
Rugby and touch: Kale Nicholson chooses rugby league as his sport, and Kyogle has a very active rugby league club. “I like the contact. Football is fun and it’s physical. It’s something to do in the afternoons”
Croquet: Bev Birmingham plays croquet with the Kyogle Croquet Club. “Croquet is our religion. I’m waiting on a double lung transplant. Croquet keeps me going, and it’s something that I really look forward to.”
Golf: Woodenbong junior golfers Chris Riley and Jake Allwood play golf because it’s fun and it gives them something to do on the weekends. There are Golf Clubs in Kyogle, Woodenbong, and Bonalbo and a golf course at Toonumbar.
Kayaking and Canoeing: Sharon Ross and her husband Steve own Clarence River Wilderness Lodge, and she along with her guests enjoys canoeing in the Clarence River. “Canoeing is fine any time” she says! There must be something in the water in the Upper Clarence, as it has produced Olympic medalist kayakers.
Indoor Hockey: Indoor hockey every Monday night 6.30 to 8.30 pm, phone (02) 66321120
