Australasia Convention 2023

The GFHA Australasia convention was held in Atura Airport Hotel in Adelaide on 31 March and 1 April. Here are some of the main updates from the convention.

No State Games in 2023

The Australasia State Games will not be held in 2023. With the World Games taking place in Derry in July, it was agreed that it is not feasible to host the competition this year. The State Games will return in 2024, with the host state to be confirmed. 2024 is also the 50th anniversary of GFHA Australasia, so the games will be a great anniversary event.

Australasia Regional Games in November

The Australasia Regional Games (junior championships) will be held in Geelong, Victoria on Saturday 11 November 2023. This would be a great opportunity for junior and social players to play in national tournament.

New Australasia GFHA Secretary

GFHA Australasia Secretary Gerard Roe will be stepping down in July. His successor will be Teresa Connolly-Hughes Daly. Teresa comes from the Penrith Gaels club in Sydney and is the current Secretary of New South Wales GFHA. Although Teresa has big shoes to fill, we’re sure she’ll do a fine job in leading the association.
