Batemans Bay ‘Hawk Cup’ comes to Canberra for 2020

On the 21st of March, the Bateman’s Bay Seahawks will host their annual ‘Hawk Cup’.

Since its inception in 2013, the Hawk Cup has been held at Hanging Rock Sportsgrounds, Batemans Bay and has attracted teams from all over NSW and ACT. This one day round robin format runs concurrent games across two adjacent fields and is a great community pre-season competition for all involved.

Due to the devastating bushfires in the South Coast region, the Batemans Bay Seahawks have relocated the 2020 Hawk Cup to Gungahlin Enclosed Oval in Canberra, with the aim to raise much needed funds for the club.


Seven AFL Canberra clubs will show their support by entering teams. The day will feature:

Batemans Bay Seahawks

Gungahlin Jets

Ainslie Tricolours

Woden Blues

ANU Griffins

Eastlake Demons

Googong Hogs
