BMTA Crowned Champion (Senior) Affiliate
BMTA returned home from the inaugural Queensland (Senior) State Cup as Champion Affiliate and 4 new teams being crowned State Champions.
The 3-day tournament held at Coomera offered adult players the same opportunity to represent their local affiliate as the highly successful Junior State Cup. BMTA fielded 23 teams in almost every division, almost a quarter of the teams in the entire tournament.
The BMTA Mustangs have developed a burgeoning Masters program in the past couple of years and this tournament allowed over 100 new players to don the red, blue and white; an exciting step forward in the development of the association.
In addition, a partnership was formed with our local clubs to allow players in those clubs to also represent their club, as well as the wider BMTA affiliate. The UQ Rebels fielded 8 teams, Southern Storm fielded 3 and Country Club Colts fielded a solitary team, to join the 11 representing the Mustangs.
As a combined force, BMTA was awarded the inaugural title of Champion Affiliate, to go with the Eggers-Mowles trophy that was awarded for Champion Affiliate at the 2019 Junior State Cup.
The senior representative program will continue to build, with the BMTA Mustangs sending teams to the Casuarina Cup in March, Pan Pacific Games in November as well as returning to the Queensland State Cup in 2020. In addition, a Mixed 30s competition will also be introduced on Tuesday nights at Whites Hill Reserve.
