At the recent Caloundra Gateball event, Peter Sweet of the Southport Red Team achieved a remarkable first for Gateball in Australia. In a practice session, Peter took just the minimum 4 strokes from the Start Area to Agari!
Since the start of Gateball in Australia in 1996, I have been offering a bottle of French Champagne to the first person to achieve a 4 stroke Start Area to Agari. Now Peter has claimed both the Champagne and the honour of the achievement. Peter said that the superb condition of the Caloundra courts contributed to his success.
Peter received his award and the Champagne at the regular Tuesday twilight Gateball session at the Southport Croquet Club.
