Participation in social mixed nines football is set to soar this spring after the COVID-19 pandemic derailed regular football seasons on the Border.
The competition, which is held at the Thurgoona Football Club, is heading into its fourth year and will commence a 10-round season on October 28.
AFL Albury-Murray development coordinator Chloe Beck said there's already been several teams sign up after registrations opened this week.
"People are just so keen to be playing sport," Beck said.
ALSO IN SPORT:
"It's been really good to have that mix of people who have done it before and people who just want to give it a go."
Games are non-contact and will be played on Wednesday evenings starting at 6pm, with occasional Monday night matches to round out the season.
No experience is necessary and the cost is $550 per team.
Registrations for the season can be made via email to email@example.com.
