Canberra, who had been the previous winner of the championships since it began in 2012 had to be satisfied coming 3rd defeating Blue mountains in the playoff 16 – 10.

Sunday was a mixed triples event which enabled players to play with different people from different clubs and with different levels of experience. Special mention to Andy who played his first game of gateball ever having never played any form of croquet in his life!

The winning triples team was Philip (Essendon), Kerry (Blue Mountains) and our very own Josh.
