Proof polocrosse really is a sport for the whole family

A FAMILY competition will become a permanent part of the Clifton Polocrosse Club Carnival after a successful competition at the weekend.

The Clifton carnival attracted 20 teams, including four family teams.

The Tara family team won from a Chinchilla family team.

Tansey and Cunningham also fielded family teams.

Clifton club president Mark Hoey said polocrosse claimed to be one of the great family sports.

"That is why we are going with the family competition to promote that aspect of the sport," Mr Hoey said.

"We had a lot of players from two generations of the one family but there are families in the sport with three generations.

"The wind and cold didn't help boost our crowd but the weekend was fantastic.

"We had great sponsorship for the weekend."

Former Clifton president George Cameron played with Clifton at the weekend and could make up a team comprised of three generations but his daughter Jodie and her family now live at Wandoan.

The polocrosse season will move to Killarney and then Cunningham on the next two weekends and then to Toowoomba.
