At the ACA Meeting last month Ethan Chilton, aged 14, was awarded one of the Scholarships that are available to Croquet Players. This Gateball Scholarship will be used for Ethan to attend the Australian Gateball Championships at Cairnlea in Melbourne from 28th November- 1st December.
Ethan began playing Gateball two years ago at Southport Croquet Club along with his Mother. His Grandfather followed soon after. His extremely polite, co-operative and intelligent personality has endeared him to everyone he meets. Ethan loves to practise and challenges himself on improving his skills. He intends qualifying to become a Referee and already has proved a very capable Team Captain.
Ethan attends Varsity College at the Gold Coast. He does not restrict himself to playing in Gateball teams. Ethan has been very successful in recent Gateball Triples events and Doubles competitions; has won the RPM Golf Croquet Doubles Tournament; is very good at Ricochet and plays in Southport’s Pennant team. Another area of sporting interest for Ethan is table tennis and he has represented his school in Table Tennis Tournaments in which he reached second place in the local schools’ competition.
Congratulations Ethan on being awarded the ACA Gateball Scholarship.
