Strathfield Croquet Club Captain, Petula Shun, has been appointed as the State Coordinator of Gateball Refereeing.
Our club is now a Club Hub, so players from other clubs, who are interested in learning Gateball, are welcome to experience introductory sessions from Strathfield’s accredited Gateball coaches.
At the first session of 2023 in January, six Strathfield gateballers, were joined by eight other gateballers. These came from a number of other clubs (Lithgow, Hazelbrook, Hurstville, Epping, Mosman and Warrawee).

As some players come from afar, they often bring their lunch and stay on to play doubles in the afternoon.
