Last weekend Wagga Wagga Croquet Club played host to the first Riverina Gateball Championship. Teams came from Canberra, the Blue Mountains and Melbourne as well as a local team from The Riverina Anglican College in Wagga. The tournament consisted of a teams event held on Saturday and a doubles event held on Sunday. Saturday saw an excellent start to the event under clear skies and after some exciting games and an eventful final Canberra managed to come away with a solid win, defeating the Bilbies from Melbourne 13 to 6 and were presented with the inaugural shield for the event.
The TRAC team of Joshua Willsher – Captain, Will Antill, Sebastian Holzapfel, Tjanna Lai and Alexander Salan performed well against teams with many more years experience in the sport.
