The competition was held for three days from August 22nd to August 24th, and each team played 10 games in a round robin of 5 teams and served as a referee when there was no competition. The first day was devoted to practicing gateball, and the Japanese team explained the rules, gave guidance on strategies and techniques, and deepened friendship.

Feedback from Local Contacts :

It was wonderful to invite enthusiasts from Japan, the birthplace of gateball, and have a goodwill exchange. I learned the rules and techniques, so I definitely want to hold it next year, so I would like to ask for your participation.
