Inter-Towns Shields Weekend

The inter-towns shields weekend is an annual competition, held in August, between the towns of Hamilton, Horsham, Mt Gambier and Warrnambool.  In turn each town hosts the tournament.

 

There are four shields contested, and these are - the Donohue Men’s Shield; the Beaurepaire Women’s Shield; the Farnden Boy’s Shield; and the Jenkin Girl’s Shield.  Teams of three persons are picked to contest each shield and they are the top players from each town.
