Sport heats up on the Adelaide Plains

Winter sports may have just finished, but it’s time to dust off the softball bat, tennis racquet, bowls and cricket bats and shove the football, netball and soccer boots to the back of the cupboard. Yep, summer is upon us! Apart from warmer days and cool drinks, summer sports are here. Here is a snapshot of what is happening in the local summer sports clubs which are always looking for new members, coaches and support.
