National sports governing bodies can’t get enough of Glen Willow


May 14, 2018 by admin

We’ve been saying this for a while now but it doesn’t hurt to say it again – Mudgee is quickly becoming the venue of choice for major sports events.

Let’s run off some events: City-Country Origin, Trans-Tasman touch series, NSW Country Junior Rugby Championships and Grassroots Rugby Festival.

You can now add to the list A-League football.

The news last week of the Central Coast Mariners and Western Sydney Wanderers sending their youth league teams to play an exhibition match later this month just shows you how attractive Mudgee has become for a sporting destination.

The redevelopment of Glen Willow has been the best thing ever for local sport

Mid-Western Regional Council general manager Warwick Bennett said in Friday’s Mudgee Guardian: “Glen Willow is proving to be a very attractive and versatile facility.”

And he is right.

Later this week, Mid-Western Regional Council will announce another major sports event – an international competition – to be held at Glen Willow in 2014.

National sports governing bodies like the NRL, Football Federation Australia and Touch Football Australia are lining up to get a piece of the Glen Willow pie.

Although the complex is located in Mudgee, the whole region benefits with people staying at our hotels, drinking in our pubs, eating in our restaurants or shopping in our stores.

As Mr Bennett put it: “The ability to host events lets us promote our region.”

The more people in our region the better it is for the local economy.

Congratulations to the Oriental Hotel who won the Mudgee Guardian Super Rugby business tipping competition.

Emma Kennedy and the team took out the competition with 205 points, two clear of second place.

For being the winning tipper, the Oriental Hotel won a Super Rugby jersey of their choice and $100.

Kennedy chose the Canterbury Crusaders jersey and said it would be hung up in the pub.

Kennedy admits she had a bit of help each week.

“I asked the blokes in the pub to help me,” she said.

It’s September and that means only one thing – finals.

All sports across the region are in full swing of their semi-finals with many sports beginning their finals a few weeks ago.

Already we have had some teams make the grand final and others eliminated from the title race.

Whatever team you play for, whatever team you support and whatever sport you play, good luck in your quest for the premiership trophy.
