Floorball challenge in Sale

SALE will host the Victorian Regional Floorball Challenge at the Gippsland Regional Sports Complex on Saturday.

The event, in its second year, will feature past and present Australian players across nine teams from Melbourne, Pakenham and Sale competing in men’s, women’s and junior divisions.

Floorball has seen strong growth in the region since Sale hosted the Australian Floorball Open last year. The local competition has grown to more than 60 players, and is run by the Sale Hockey Club at GRSC every Sunday from 4pm.

An indoor version of hockey, floorball is a fast, exciting and safe sport suitable for all ages and abilities with entire families taking the field together.

Tomorrow’s event will include a free junior clinic from noon, open to anyone wishing to participate.

Play begins at 9am and finishes around 5.30pm.
