So I don't speak French, but one of my old teammates is number 73 in the photo. He plays for a team in Southern France that just took 4th in the pro division for the French league. Thought it was cool that a good chunk of the paper highlighted our sport in a positive way!

This is something that almost anyone of us can help with.

Whenever you’re doing anything like this get in touch with the local papers and they may be happy to put in an article.
You might manage to get someone to turn up if you let them know in advance that you’re running an event.

On the chances that no-ones coming or its because you made podium put some words together, have some photos taken or have a word with the photographers.
A ready made article is heaven sent for local papers


Salisbury journal did have fairly regular pieces because a local tournament player put in the effort and got the odd half page spread in the sports section. This did backfire slightly when he was involved in an unrelated court case as they had plenty photos, but it was good while it lasted

The good brother was the brother that wrote up the articles to the newspaper, it was the naughty brother that had the higher profile in the national papers
