Greenough Polocrosse Club


 

The Greenough Polocrosse Club is a very family orientated and competitive club. We are lucky enough to have many dedicated players that not only play at club level but also at state level, and we even have our very own international stars! Of course with all these fabulous players amongst the club, they also make for great coaches and mentors.

We are also very good at being social too! We of course like to have a ‘catch up’ after practice, annually at the Murchison tournament we have a club spit roast prepared over the coals, themed dinner nights through out the season, on a Saturday evening of a tournament we hold what we call a ‘nibbles and dribbles’ where the grade captains update the club of how their team is going, followed by of course arguably some of the best prepared nibbles in the state!

With our club wind-ups we like to travel away to the likes of Kalbarri, Horrocks or Dongara which makes for a fantastic weekend away!
