As Australians we have some rather quirky traits. For example, we rarely eat food without the addition of sauce. We abbreviate virtually every name and cap it with an ‘O’. We would rather go to the V8’s or the cricket than to a play or a show, and if you don’t know the footy score, you’re mates might start to think you’re a little…odd.

There’s no doubt that as a nation, we Australians love our sports. With summer on its way the list of sports to watch, play and follow grows. For your quick fix head into Penrith RSL this summer for all the live sports action on one of our many large screen HD TVs.

This summer season will have you on the edge of your seat with several international golf events where some of the world’s greatest golfers compete for some of Australia’s largest prize purses (screened October – December).

For all the “rev heads” out there the high octane action is not to be missed with a range of blood pumping motorsport action in The V8 Supercars series and the MOTO GP Rounds (screened October – December). Watch your favourite A-League teams go head-to-head this season which is sure to be massive (screened October – April). Don your fascinator for the 2013 Spring Carnival and the race that stops the nation, The Emirates Melbourne Cup (5th November). Tennis nuts can get their fix watching the Brisbane International, Hopman Cup and the Australian Open (screened December and January). And we can’t forget the cricket fans… The Boxing Day test and the Ashes series in the middle of our 40+ degree summer is enough to make any cricket fan hot and sweaty (screened December and January).

Penrith RSL has something on the big screens for everyone’s sporting tastes, but if you are the type of person that prefers to be part of the action rather than watching it from your armchair you have come to the right place. Penrith RSL boasts a number of sporting and special interest intra-clubs
that are represented in the local Penrith community and provide great facilities and opportunities to young up and coming sporting stars. Cricket, soccer, swimming, hockey and golf just to name a few. There is even a chess club for the “not so active” sports lover. You can contact these intraclubs
and a stack more from our website:

So whatever your sports addiction this Summer, Penrith RSL has something for you.
