Perfect weather conditions were the order of the weekend when players from seven teams gathered at the Southport Croquet Club on the 22nd-23rd of June 2013 for the annual “Mallet Sports on the Broadwater”.
Although the event was not attended by the Japanese visitors that we regularly see at this tournament, people from as far as the Blue Mountains came to enjoy some very exciting gateball matches.
The event was won by the Tamborine Mountain Raptors who managed to go through the competition with only one loss. Southport and Ipswich tied for second place with four wins from their six games but the superior net points allowed Southport to claim the honours for second with Ipswich third.
At this stage of the competition sees Tamborine Mountain Raptors leading the championship with a percentage rate of 76%. Second is Ipswich with a score of 68.18% and Toowoomba third with a score of 60%.
Next round of the Queensland Gateball Teams Challenge will be once again at the Southport club where they play host to the Queensland State Gateball Championship over the weekend on 17-18 August 2013.
