Re: 2019-2020 Social Competition Outcome
Orange Thunder Touch Football firstly wishes to extend its best wishes to all club members and we hope that everyone is staying safe at this time.
We wish to provide an update to all club members in relation to the outcome of the Orange Thunder Touch Football 2019-2020 social competitions, which were suspended during the final series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With all touch football competitions currently suspended until 1 June 2020, there is no option for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season to be played. As such, the Orange Thunder Touch Football committee discussed outcome options for our social competitions.
After consideration of a number of options, as well as consideration of there being a number of teams still in contention in all competitions, the Orange Thunder Touch Football committee have made the unfortunate decision that all 2019-2020 social competitions would be deemed as a no result.
This was deemed the fairest decision for all teams who were still in final series contention.
Unfortunately this season has been unique in relation to a number of competition rounds being affected by factors including dangerous smoke levels, wet weather and finally the COVID-19 pandemic. Our club will always attempt to conduct our social competition games if it is safe to do so, but sometimes factors outside of our control prevent this.
In light of the number of competition rounds which were affected during the 2019-2020 season, Orange Thunder Touch Football are pleased to announce it will be offering an early bird discount to all participants (whether they are new or returning participants) who register in our 2020-2021 social competition later this year. This discount will allow all participants across all competitions the opportunity to enjoy the upcoming touch football competition at a discounted cost.
This early bird discount will be offered to all participants – including all Men’s, Women’s, Mixed, Junior and Mini competitions. Further information about this discount will be advertised in the coming months, as our 2020-2021 social competition registrations open.
We would like to thank all of our wonderful club members for their continued support of our club.
President – Orange Thunder Touch Football
