Club Tamborine Jackaroo Training
A camp was held at Club Tamborine recently to support Australia’s elite Jackaroo bowlers, helping them with their preparations for the upcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in July. Damian, the greenkeeper at Mt Tamborine, has been preparing a surface for the players by replicating UK style of green.
At the camp, Karen Murphy AM, Jackaroo Assistant Coach, said how exciting it was to finally get the players out on the green, hold our first trial and get the ball rolling.
“It’s the first time we’ve really been able to get together as a Jackaroos family,” Karen said.
“It’s quite a strength related game over in the UK. We need a bit more power so just making sure we’re physically fit as well as mentally and psychologically ready. “
Serena Bonnell added that “we’ve really spent a lot of time training on it and it’s going to give us the best opportunity to bring back some medals”.
Karen Murphy summed it up by saying that “the Commonwealth Games for the Jackaroos is a wonderful experience to feel part of a whole team; there’s great respect and great camaraderie”.
