Pan Pac Masters Games

The Pan Pacific Masters Games were held on the Gold Coast from 3 -11 November 2012.

Beach Sports had a number teams competing in across several divisions, and three teams brought home medals!

A big congratulations to Roger Smith and Ben Travaini for winning the gold medal in the over 30s mens pairs division.  The Distinguished Men of Beach Sports – Brian Rizzardo, Theo Balaskas, Ross Lawrence and Paul Rayner, won silver in the over 50s mens fours.

But the stars of the Games were Glen and Judy Pacholke who competed almost every day during the week!  They played in the indoor volleyball mens, ladies and mixed six a side and then moved across beach volleyball pairs, winning a total of four silver medals!

Marty Cantwell and Paul Macdonnell’s team took out bronze in the over 30 mens fours division.  And finally an honourable mention to Mayumi Komeda, Trevor Stade, Vicki Anderson and Clint Harry for a tough run in the over 30s mixed fours.
