The Trans Tasman Cup was first held at Groomalong in Christchurch in 2011. From a chance phone call it was decided that seeing as both Australia & New Zealand had selected their own Groom Team that we should organise an annual friendly rivalry. This was organised and we now have an annual event which alternates between countries from year to year. The Aussies won the last Trans Tasman in NZ and will be out now to make sure the cup stays in Australia for 2018. It is a great way for both countries to prepare for the upcoming World Titles and also show some great comraderie between our groomers and enjoy a lot of fun and great grooming over the weekend. Our best wishes go to both teams as they play the game in the spirit that it was created .
