The fun and action of six-a-side soccer has once again descended on the Bangalow sportsfields as the Summer6s got underway last week.
The tournament boasts more than 800 players in 72 teams with the women’s comp accounting for 40 teams.
The numbers entering has been capped for a few years after the number of teams expanded to 90, and made the event too big to manage, according to organiser Glenn Hanigan.
The key to the success of the open-age competition was its simplicity and ease.
‘There is no training commitment, you just turn up to the same venue each week and play the game,’ he said.
Games last 40 minutes and are played over three time slots.
After seven weeks of competition teams are graded for the final weeks of action leading into the finals.
