The Challenge Matamata Swifts Ladies have the weekend off due to the FIFA U-20 World Cup quarter final that is being played in Hamilton on Sunday.
To make the most of the afternoon’s double header, the club is hosting a fundraiser to support a club member in his battle against Breast Cancer.

Cross Bar Hoop Challenge: After the WaiBOP Premiership game, there will also be a Baigent Motors Cross Bar Hoop Challenge, which entails a hoop hanging from the centre of the cross bar and the ball placed on the 18 yard box. $5.00 to enter the competition. From the 18 yard box you must try to kick the ball into the hoop. If you miss you’re out, if you get it in, you’re into the next round.
