2022 Canterbury College vs John Paul College – Local Derby: TAS Sport Alumni Supporters Round

Are you a Canterbury past student?

Want to support our current Firsts Netball and Firsts Rugby teams vs traditional local derby rivals JPC from the Saturday morning sidelines?

A frustrating combination of ongoing wet weather, severely waterlogged fields, and player absences due to lingering COVID cases and a rampant winter flu, has wreaked havoc on recent TAS Sport fixtures.

Therefore, we could only offer a ‘date claimer’ for this year’s Local Derby TAS Sport Alumni Supporters Round UNTIL NOW, and ask that interested past students PLEASE RSVP for catering purposes, but stay tuned for an event confirmation or cancellation notice 2-3 days beforehand.


Maybe we end up with a small (but happy) band of alumni supporters on the Saturday!

We appreciate your patience and understanding with the difficulties we have trying to plan these events early, with so many elements beyond our control.
