Name your pub sport

IF you fancy your prowess at pub sports you should head to the Greenhouse Tavern tomorrow.

That’s when the popular Coffs Harbour watering hole will be transformed into an action-packed arena for the inaugural Greenhouse Challenge.

The activities kick off at noon when local community organisations will battle it out for $3000 in sponsorships.

“The event has been designed to allow Coffs Harbour’s sporting and social clubs and charitable and social organisations the opportunity for some much-valued funding and the opportunity to have some fun in the process,” said the tavern’s manager Shane McCarthy.

“The challenge will be made up of a number of indoor and outdoor team events, none of which require a particularly high level of fitness or stamina.

“There will be some of your traditional pub games like darts and pool, some which require a bit of effort like riding an exercise bike, shooting baskets in basketball and tunnel ball and some Greenhouse originals like bus pulling and keg relays.”

Mr McCarthy said teams would comprise two male and two female members and a scoring system would determine individual event and overall winners.

Team members need to be aged over 18 and need to be members of immediate family of members of the nominated club or organisation to be eligible.
