Inaugural Beach Touch Event A Success

first_img32 teams took part in the event, which saw 16 Mixed teams and eight Men’s and eight Women’s teams battle it out to be the first Beach Touch champions. Despite overcast weather and occasional rain throughout the day, there was plenty of fun to be had on Maroubra Beach. Beach Touch Football Australia was created by 2011 World Cup Australian Men’s 30’s representative, Chris Jonson, and 2011 World Cup Australian Senior Mixed coach, Justin Creighton, who were thrilled to see the first event take place yesterday and have some big plans for the future. “Beach Touch is alive, the inaugural event, and obviously it’s a learning experience for us, we’ve got a product now and obviously we want to make it better,” Jonson told the crowd at the presentation function. “Our main goal with these four events (in the coming months) is to have a product, fine tune it, so that in October we plan on rolling out the national pro tour,” he said. In the Women’s division, Pink Bits were too good for Not Sure in the final, Manly beat Bankstown in the Men’s final and MBK Soldiers defeated The Guns in the final of the Mixed division. The next Beach Touch event will be the Corporate Championships, which will be held on Saturday, 25 February at Maroubra Beach. For more details please visit www.beachtouch.com.au.
