    TROUBLED tennis star Bernard Tomic has been hit with a fresh setback after he pulled out of the US Open with a hip injury before his second round match.

    PROSPER Utseya has become the second Zimbabwean to take a hat-trick in an ODI, but South Africa still pulled off a comfortable victory.

    NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart has returned to the track for the first time since he fatally struck fellow driver Kevin Ward.

    MIDFIELDER Giancarlo Gallifuoco has joined the ranks of Australians in the English Premier League, signing with Swansea on a free transfer.

    “I WANT to be a Wallaby” were the telling words from Karmichael Hunt that his jump to the Reds is not the cosy end to his three-code career.

    Women In Sport

    A new event added to our calendar, Women in Sport was designed to celebrate all that is great about female athletes.

    This function will be different every year and can be held either at the MCC or at an external location. Our function includes a two course specially selected menu with a full beverage service.

    This event provides us the opportunity to showcase the contributions made to our sporting industry by women from all different sports.

    2013 saw us celebrate female Olympians with Tales from the Olympic Starting Line. Our Olympians included: Shelley Chaplin – wheelchair basketball, Leanne Del Toso - wheelchair basketball, Elise Rechichi - sailing, Danielle Woodward – slalom kayak, Loudy Wiggins - diving and Liz Cambage - basketball. Our panel host for the evening was Tiffany Cherry.

    We also had our own WOMCC Committee member Margot Foster who was a member of the crew which won Australia its first Olympic medal in women’s rowing. Margot played the important role as stroke and she stroked the coxed four to a bronze medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.
    This year was a networking event only however, future events will combine networking and fundraising depending on the format of the function.    

    Please support this function and book early so as not to miss out.
