FIFO and gelball

Before gelball I struggled to find a sport I could play while working the 2 on 1 off, other teams don’t want FIFO workers because we are away too often and can’t train enough, but gelball was the exact opposite, I could play once or 5 times in my off swing depending on my plans, I could go alone or with friends and I was always welcomed, people were always chatty and friendly, it was the community surrounding the game that turned this hobby into a passion for me. Having an activity that engaged me physically and socially while having an awesome time helps so much with the unsocial life of a FIFO worker, helping me keep a strong physical and mental health in an otherwise difficult industry and lifestyle.
