In 2009 Robert Rogers, Steve Patridge, Ed Riewerts, and Marty Wright came together to form the Texas Throwers Club after realizing the need for an active masters throwing organization in Texas. The goal of the club was, and still is, the promotion of throwing safety, training and masters throwing. The first throwers meet was held on June 9, 2009 in Carrizo Springs, Texas. For some of us who attended that first meet, it is remembered not just for being a very hot and dusty day, but as the start of a love for masters throwing.

Members of the Texas Throwers Club have gone on to win both national and world masters titles. More importantly, they have made friends and represented the club positively wherever they have competed.

Throwing is a community sport, and we all have a common trait - the desire to surmount gravity in pursuit of Track and Field throwing excellence. Texas Throwers promotes participation in the Track and Field throwing events and hosts five to six throwers meets every year. Participation in an event may be limited depending on the facility, so make sure to register for all events as soon as you can. Non-members are welcome to register and participate in Texas Throwers events as well.
