There can only be one winner but there will always be many friendships.  The Ladies National Finals are being held tonight at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.  Come along and see the best of the best.  Tickets at the door are $12 and for children under 14 are free.

The talent of the ladies will amaze you but even more astounding will be the scene backstage, where ladies who’ve competed against each other for many years (sometimes decades) will chat like old friends, wish each other good luck and congratulate each other, no matter what the result. That’s what makes us all proud to be part of physie.

We’re especially looking forward to seeing the Novice section of ladies – there seems to have been an explosion of numbers in this section at the zones this year.  Central Coast zone had 51 competitors in this section! – which meant they qualified for an extra place at nationals.  It’s fantastic to see ladies coming back to physie and getting involved again.

Here’s some more happy snaps from ladies comps… Enjoy.  And if you’re coming tonight, it starts at 7.00pm, the best parking is in P3 and you’ll also see the qualifying rounds of the Elite Ladies sections who are vying for a spot on the Opera House stage next month.
