Sunday doubles: Congratulations to David and Gareth Hughes from Queensland on winning the doubles competition. They almost recorded a perfect game in the final defeating Glen and Kristina Whitehead from Canberra 23-10.
David and Gareth not only dazzled us with their gateball but also with their virulent fluoro orange shirts. These were souvenirs of a 2014 Qld Gateballers Cruise. They even told us that there is another cruise boat that has a croquet lawn on board.
