Teams flock to new Redcliffe centre

Posted: 7am 16 Sep 2021

The new Redcliffe Oztag centre is preparing to host its first matches.

Twenty mixed teams have, at the time of writing, registered for the venue’s summer season which kicks-off on September 21.

Bek Robertson, Redcliffe’s venue manager, said she was “happy with the numbers”.

Mixed teams

“We’re starting from scratch with mixed teams and I haven’t done much promotion yet,” she said, “I was only aiming for 12 teams.”

Redcliffe Oztag fixtures will be at the Ray Crawley Fields, Clontarf on Tuesday evenings through to December.

Moves were made to launch Oztag in Redcliffe around eight years ago, but it did not take off.

However, North Lakes did.

Maxed out

Ms Robertson is launching Redcliffe after the success of North Lakes Oztag, at Woodside, which she also manages and is “maxed out”.

“It’s going crazy at the moment trying to catch up with this season after the lockdown and (State of) Origin nights,” she said.

“We’ll have a week off after North Lakes ends and then into the summer season.”

Aim of game

The aim of oztag, which was invented in 1992, is to get a tag on the side of your opponent’s shorts to stop them scoring.
