Annual National Sporting Weekend

June 11, 2010 @ No Comments

This year was the SSPA’s 15th Annual National Sporting Weekend in Albury. This weekend was originally introduced in 1995 to provide opportunities for people with short stature to play competitive sport against others like themselves. It began with the State of Origin match between the NSW and Victorian basketball teams and has since progressed into a weekend which provides competitive sporting opportunities for all who attended. Since 1995, Leanne Wegner has coordinated the organisation of this wonderful event and we thank her for all of her time and effort. The weekend has grown from strength to strength and has turned itself into a mini-convention with on average, 80 people in attendance.

2010 saw some new sports added to the agenda including boccia and badminton, as well as the usual State of Origin basketball match between Victoria and NSW. Victoria played a great match and were deserving winners of the Rosemary Hobbs Trophy, 34-19.
