The 4th annual Newtown Breakaways Women’s Pre-season AFLX Challenge is on again

We beat the Covid19 lockdown in 2020 by a day but succumbed to climate change in 2021 but year the challenge has again attracted Women’s Community AFL Teams from all divisions across Sydney and the Central West to play at the home of AFL Women’s AFL in the Inner West Henson Park.

6 Clubs and 19 teams will compete in two graded pools for this pre-season tournament to test their recruits and build culture in their teams.  Another dynamic demonstration of the growing strength of the Sydney Women’s AFL community and again including regional participants.

Bring your partners, sisters, brothers, mates, aunts, daughters, friends and neighbours to celebrate and watch Women’s Community AFL.

Bathurst Bushrangers / Newtown Breakaways / Pennant Hills Demons / Randwick City Saints / UTS AFC  / Western Magic

There will be bar and catering available, but bring a picnic and make a day of it.  Free Entry means a real opportunity for all the family to get to know women’s AFL & perhaps consider playing … it’s only pre-season, so still plenty of time to join a team (Breakaways preferably).

The Breakaways Women ‘s Pre-season AFLX Challenge has been made possible with support of the AFL Sydney, Inner West Council and commercial supporters including O’Neills Sportswear and the Salisbury Hotel
