KIAMA, South Coast NSW
We are excited to announce that the first ever Illawarra Open of Table Football will be held in Kiama on the NSW South Coast on Sunday the 11th of March 2018 (approx. 9am start), hosted by the Illawarra Table Football Club.
We will also host a smaller warm up WASPA "FAST 15" tournament held on the Saturday afternoon 10th of March 2018 (approx. 3pm start).
Registraion is now closed for this event.
The event is an Australian Table Football Association ATFA approved FISTF Satellite event, meaning that official FISTF World ranking points are on offer. We also plan to have a smaller WASPA event and/or a promotional event on the day or on the Saturday before so we can involve and invite as many new or existing players as possible.
The tournament is open to anyone to register of any gender, age or skill level. We want to showcase the sport of Subbuteo / Table Football in the Illawarra Region so come along, take a road trip, make it a memorable weekend away in the beautiful seaside town of Kiama.
The tournament will be held in the 1st Kiama Scout Group Hall right on Kiama Harbour a short walk to the town's famous Blowhole and Kiama Lighthouse plus close to nearby cafe's and shops on the main street.
Only 1 hour 45 mins drive south of Sydney, Kiama is popular seaside semi-rural destination within the Illawarra on the South Coast of New South Wales, surrounded by stunning beaches on one side and rolling green farm hills on the other.
Because it is a holiday destination, there are plenty of accommodation types or holiday parks to suit your budget. It's a Labour Day long weekend for Melbourne and Canberra so there's an excuse to take the trip and stay for the weekend. Otherwise for players from Sydney you can make it a day out for the short road trip or catch a 2 hour train from Central station.
