It was a successful weekend on and off the field for the Quirindi Polocrosse Club when they hosted their annual carnival on the weekend.
One of the largest on the NSW polocrosse calendar, the carnival saw 55 teams from as far away as Gulgong, Warren, Sydney, Narrabri, Coffs Harbour, Guyra and Maitland saddle up across sub-junior, junior and open divisions.
The host club was well represented with more than eight teams taking to the fields, and claimed the honours in the juniors.
The opens 1 and women's 1 fell just short of home carnival success, with the opens going down to Bunnan in the final after defeating Guyra in their semi-final while the women finished runners-up to Narrabri.
Quirindi club president Brett Holz said it was a great weekend.
The weather was on their side - Saturday was a bit bleak, but Sunday was a "magnificent" day to wrap it all up - and there was some top quality polocrosse played over the two days.
"The quality was very good. But when you attract that number of teams and players you attract a lot of quality," he said.
"We had some really good finals to finish the weekend off."
With their own carnival done and dusted the teams will now turn their attention to the other carnivals around starting with Cassilis this weekend.
The club will have seven teams playing in that.
