The 2011 ANZAC Challenge takes place on Saturday 7th May at Wasps in Acton and is London’s biggest Australasian Sports event and is a day a day of Sport, Culture, Entertainment and Remembrance.
ANZAC Day is the one true occasion that binds the two great nations of Australia and New Zealand. It is in the spirit of bringing people together in remembrance on this day.
“A sporting event for the community by the sports clubs of the community.”
The event has grown in such popularity and over the past few years and with the 2011 amalgamation of the two oldest ANZAC sports events the ANZAC Rugby Challenge (est 1983) and the AFL ANZAC Cup (est 1995) the event is now named the ANZAC Challenge.
The 2011 ANZAC Challenge will be proudly hosted at Wasps FC and supported by the local antipodean community. For those new to the event, Australia takes on New Zealand in numerous sports for the day including Rugby League, Rugby Union, Touch Rugby, Tag Rugby and Netball! The day also features the 22nd AFL ANZAC Cup, the 28th ANZAC Rugby Challenge and the ActiveAntipodean Social Netball competition with some great prizes up for grabs!
