A great weekend of a high standard in both sports. The teams all worked together to make the event a great weekend for all. We thank the players who travelled from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia to join the South Australian team.
South Australia won gold for the first time. Showing great improvement over 5 years.
Queensland took home silver - most of these players have been coming over the five years … thank you to Steve, Katrina and parents who support these guys.
All states took home bronze - this team had players from all states playing together and under the guidance of Simon, Amanda and Matthew Jackson. They were very competitive.
Best Bowler Award: Ryan Ho (Queensland)
Best Batter Award: Michael Harris (SA)
Neville Bajzath Memorial Trophy (Umpires Award): Adrian Jackson (NSW)
Tournament award went to Matthew Jackson (VIC) who stood up and lead the all states team.
Players from three states formed three teams and played games over three days.
Netball coaching sessions gave new players the opportunity to learn the skills needed.
Then on to the games and everyone showed great sportsmanship and worked hard to help each other out. Each team had a mixture of players from each state.
