Mandurah goes sports-crazy over the long weekend | photos

Alright, we know Mandurah and the entire Peel region loves its sport, but this long weekend got out of hand.

The entire town went sports crazy, with a number statewide events being held in the area.

Saturday morning saw thousands of swimmers and spectators flock to the Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre for the two-day 2018 Country Pennants meet, while later in the day the region’s cricket fanatics hit Pinjarra for the Peel Premier League T20 grand final.

The home side finished victorious with a win over Singleton.

Sunday morning kicked off with a packed out crowd hitting both the Thomson Street Netball Pavilion and Bendigo Bank Stadium for the Aboriginal Youth Sports Super Carnival.

The carnival encompasses Netball WA’s Aboriginal Youth Gala Day, and the WA Football Commission’s Nicky Winmar Cup.

Volunteer firefighters from around the state converged on Mandurah’s track for the WA Volunteer Fire Brigades State Open Championships, which ran over Saturday and Sunday.

The public holiday opened with a bang at Town Beach, as the Open Water Swim series rolled into town for round 10, and the weekend came to a close with the running of the Pinjarra Pacing Cup at the town’s Paceway.
