On the weekend of 20-21 April 2013, Gateballers from around Queensland congregated at the McIlwraith Croquet Club for the annual running of “The McIlwraith Challenge”, the second event in the Queensland Gateball Teams Championship. The event was well attended with eleven teams competing for the honour of being declared the winner.
The level of competition was once again of a high standard with some games going down to a “shootout” to find the winner and many more wins being achieved by the slimmest of margins. Ipswich and Tamborine Mountain Raptors both completed the round robin event on equal wins but the better for and against gained by Tamborine Mountain got them over the line. Broadbeach with only one less win picked up third place.
After round two of the Championship sees Caloundra maintain a healthy percentage of 87.5 although have only competed in one tournament. In second place is Tamborine Mountain Raptors with a percentage of 76.47 and Broadbeach third with an overall percentage of 66.67.
