HE recently returned victorious to his
Southern Highlands home after two
weeks competing in the Hockey World
Cup in India.
It is the latest sporting achievement for
the talented striker, best known as GT,
who began his hockey career after a bet
between his father, also named Glenn
Turner (GT senior), and a family friend,
Paul Bunt, in 1989.
According to the tale "old mates" Paul
and GT senior would meet up at local
hotel on a Saturday night after their
respective hockey and rugby matches.
The pair were walking to their homes
late one Saturday night after a few drinks
when they decided to make a bet.
Paul always wanted GT senior to take
up hockey. GT senior always wanted Paul
to play rugby so they could enjoy a sport
The bet was set that if Paul's hockey
team (Bowral rst grade) nished higher
than GT senior's rugby team (Bowral
Blacks rst grade), GT was to play hockey
the next year.
But if the reverse was to happen, Paul
had to play rugby the following year.
As it turned out Paul's team won the
premiership and GT senior joined Bowral
Hockey Club for the 1990 season.
He and wife Edwina, also decided to
register their young children, Stacey,
Dionne, David and Glenn with the club.
The young GT started in the under-6
team alongside Paul's son, Jye.
Edwina had grown up playing hockey in
the Southern Highlands and was pleased
with the choice of family sport.
GT senior eventually returned to rugby,
but his children continued to play and
excel in hockey at di erent levels, GT
junior going on to become one of the best
in the country.
The young hockey talent began to
attract attention from o cials as an under
11 player, but injury and illness during his
late teen years to early 20s plagued his
run to the top of his eld in Australia.
He nally hit his sporting straps in 2009
when he was selected in the national
team for a tour of Europe. >
