Macksville Falcons touch football club night draws huge crowd

THE MACKSVILLE Falcons Touch Association are well used to headlining at major competitions - but it's at the grassroots where the legend is born.

On Thursday nights the fields off Willis St are awash with hundreds of players and a family atmosphere for the club comp.

Children and adults of all ages - some 600 in all - see almost 60 teams vie for the summer season.

Anyone can get a team together and register at the start of the season - so if you'd like to give it a crack keep an eye on the Macksville Falcons Facebook page to see when registrations open.

The Falcons have six senior representative teams about to participate in the NSW State Cup, and 11 young teams preparing for Junior State Cup in February.

Registrations are now open on the Macksville Touch website for the new Touch Football Specialised competition that will kick-off in January. This is the Falcons highly anticipated all inclusive program which will make touch football accessible for participants with physical and/or intellectual impairments.
