WATCH A GAME WITH US
Always a fun day out, watch the Bright Mountain Men take on their rivals at their stunning home ground at Pioneer Park, Bright. Watch from the historic stand or head into the bar at The Pavilion. Check the fixtures on the Ovens & King Football & Netball League website. Alternatively, see the Myrtleford Alpine Saints Football Club at McNamara Reserve competing in the Ovens Murray Football League, or the Dederang Mount Beauty Bombers heating things up in the Tallangatta & District Football League.
Pack the esky, grab a picnic blanket and settle in for a classic day of country cricket at one of the beautiful ovals in Bright & Surrounds. Head to Myrtleford to see the Ovens Valley United Cricket Club – AKA The Tigers – or watch the Mount Beauty United Cricket Club or Harrietville Cricket Club compete on home turf against the talented teams of the Wangaratta and Districts Cricket Association. During the cricket season, you can find the match fixtures and results on the Wangaratta and Districts Cricket Association website.
With a rich Italian immigrant history, it almost goes without saying that 'the beautiful game' is taken very seriously in Myrtleford – and so is their canteen! Watch the local talent take on the teams of the Albury Wodonga comp at the Myrtleford Savoy Soccer Club's home ground between March and September. Find the season's draw on the Savoy Soccer Club's website.
For some fast-paced excitement and seriously good talent, watch a game of netball.
