Te Awamutu AFC starts 2024 off strong with growing demand

Te Awamutu AFC has started the year off strong with several club sections showing significant growth.

The club put the majority of the growth down to the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup, saying its knock-on effect will still be felt for years to come.

Bone & Body Blueprint co-owner Lesley Egglestone recently reached out to offer Dexa scans (Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scans that determine one’s body composition) to the girls’ team.

Egglestone offered them two scans each, the first being completed this week.

The girls also just renovated their own club toilets in February and are coaching younger females at the club.

The club said these things would show that not only are the women eliminating barriers, but they are now the face of the club.

As the club looks to enter two teams in the WaiBOP league, they are encouraging anyone keen to play to reach out and join them.
