The full report of the Jamberoo Triples Competition is still being finalised but one player had such a good time she couldn’t wait to comment. Ruth Bridger from Strathfield had this to say.
As a newcomer to gateball competitions, I certainly enjoy seeing so many clubs come together in friendly rivalry. It was a special delight to see and play against the inter-generational team (the Crook family from SA). I wish I had them all in one picture. From the eldest to the youngest of the clan, they were a pleasure to play against.
It was quite something to play gateball at Jamberoo, as it is such a beautiful location, with so many GB lawns prepared beautifully, but the lawns were fast and many borders challenged our skill set! Visitors had all the amenities they needed, and players were well looked after by Jamberoo’s large team of volunteers.
Thanks to all involved, I had a wonderful experience, and hope to return next year. I also thank all those who taught me so much during the weekend.
