The Redcliffe Tigers AFL Club is throwing open its doors on November 26 for its annual community open day.

President Gayle Wetzel Fitzgerald says the club has doubled in size in the past three years, making it one of the fastest-growing clubs in Southeast Queensland.

Three Tigers teams celebrated back-to-back premierships in 2022 – the Under-12 and Under-16 boys and the Under-13 girls.

The club also had three League best and fairest winners – Riley Street from the Under-16 boys, Hamish Clark in the Under-14 boys and Ruby Noon in the Under-13 girls.

Gayle says The Gabba hosting the 2020 AFL Grand Final shone a spotlight on Aussie Rules, sparking a greater interest in the code.

“And obviously this new facility (opened in 2020) has helped us,” she says.

How to sign on

“I’m sure when we get Stage 2 in a couple of years it will go even further.”

Gayle says Stage 2 includes a fully laid and fenced oval at Nathan Rd, with more changerooms will allow greater flexibility when men’s and women’s games are played at the grounds.

Visitors to the open day will be able to sign on for the 2023 season, with registrations open for Auskick and Super Stars, Juniors - U8s to U11s (male and female teams), Youth - U13s to U17s (male and female teams), Senior Men, Senior Women and male and female Masters - Over 35s and Over 45s.

The open day is on Saturday, November 26 from 8-11am at the Nathan Road Sports Ground at Kippa-Ring.
