Weipa women on a roll
By Jan Baumann – Tropical Far North QLD District
For the first time, women from the Weipa Club have entered the 2022 District Ladies Pennant Competition. Due to the travel involved, it was decided that Weipa club would name a Cairns green as their home club as we play home and away matches.
They chose Gordonvale, which has a grass green, as does Weipa and recently played (and won) their three home matches. In July, the women will play their three away matches and those eligible to play in the Champion of Champions event will remain for that week.
We are slowly introducing more games that include the Weipa members. The Weipa Shield was played in Cairns over three consecutive days last month and the Bowls Carnival (9 a side) is in October. We welcome the Weipa women and have already had players as part of our district side and no doubt more will follow.
