Whakatane’s inaugural Junior Rugby League Festival begins on Friday.

The Festival is the creation of Tyrone Campbell of Global Games, an event organising company with  extensive experience in holding international sports fixtures and which is now based in Matatā.

The Festival will see 40 teams of 10­12 year old league players attend the competition and be hosted  on marae throughout the District.

More than 3000 people are expected to be in the Whakatāne area as supporters or players over the  Festival weekend, so hospitality and retail providers can expect to see many of these visitors out and  about seeking places to eat and things to do. As a junior league festival we can also expect a few cuts  and scrapes so pharmacies may want to consider extending their trading hours.

The public are invited to show their support at the opening ceremony on Friday at Mataatua Reserve  at 2pm, and also at the games themselves, which will be held at Rugby Park and Rex Morpeth Park on  Saturday and Sunday starting at 8:30am.

This will be a regular annual event supported by Whakatāne District Council, and we are hoping  Whakatāne will give our visitors a warm welcome that will make them sure to return. Events such as  this have a sizeable and very positive impact on our economy and this event in particular can also  have a very positive impact on our young people.

  1. Hello There. I found your blog using msn.
    This is a very well written article. I will be sure
    to bookmark it and come back to read more of your
    useful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  2. I blog frequently and I really appreciate your information. This great article has
    truly peaked my interest. I will take a note of
    your website and keep checking for new information about
    once per week. I opted in for your RSS feed too.

  3. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails
    with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
    hang of it!

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see
    if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  6. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to know so much approximately
    this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel
    that you simply could do with some percent to force the
    message home a little bit, but instead of that, that is excellent
    blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back. natalielise pof

  7. I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.
