A Vawdon Cup like no other

Who would have thought in 2020 Vawdon Cup would have looked so different. In fact it’s been a Touch Football season like no other.

Amongst the big name sports like AFL and the NRL ,”agile” and “flexible” were buzz words used as the game navigated complex challenges to arrive at their history-making conclusion.

And we completely understood. Was Vawdon Cup happening and if so, what would it look like?

To comply with the NSW GOVERNMENT PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER we asked clubs to support the Addendum in place for this event: –

  • No spectators and to ensure we did not exceed a total of 500 participants for community sport, which included players and officials,
  • We asked the Coaching Staff to wear masks in the sub boxes as social distancing was not possible.
  • We scanned in all our team sheets to ensure limited contact

Vawdon Cup was not like every other year. It had changed.

It was compressed.

It was hard.

It felt long and most of all we felt frustrated because human nature suggests – we do not like change.

But thanks to all the amazing volunteers from all our Vawdon Cup Affiliates, our players, coaches, and referees who all complied with the Addendum in place – we made it!  #VAWDONCUP 2020 has been completed
