Two-up is back all over Canberra on Anzac Day, following the dawn service and early morning breakfasts. Bars, restaurants, clubs, and hotels are running the game in the early afternoon, alongside other Anzac Day events.
The Canberra Sevices club and the Belconnen Labor Club are holding two-up games for the first time since the Pandemic began.
Canberra Services club president Michael Kinniburgh said getting back to annual two-up competitions was important to the club.
”We have been having games since 1939, so it’s a huge deal, ” he said.
”We haven’t had any games for the past two years, as we didn’t want to put any of our older patrons at risk.
”It’s going to be absolutely amazing. It’s always such a great day.”
Belconnen’s Canberra labor club is also hosting two-up for the first time since 2019. The games start at noon, and the Anzac Day footy will be streamed during the day.
