Last year, 38 countries participated in one game over the course of 2 days that united players across 6 continents as teammates! Each country had two teams that represented Team Blue and Team White and accumulated a score that was tallied as the games traveled west from New Zealand all the way until the big finale here in Canada. Our players became teammates with other girls from all over the World!
