Netballers return to courts after month-long hiatus

Welcome back to netball after our four week hiatus. We hope you are fully rested and ready to get back into the season. NetSetGo! will also return this coming Saturday at the usual time of 12.30pm.

All clubs need to be aware of their canteen commitments for the season. For the junior grade time slots,11.30am and 12.30pm, we have attempted to place the team playing on court three on duty to allow parents to complete their commitments during their child's game. For the senior time slots, your commitment will either be before or after your game to allow for all teams in your club to meet their own commitments and relieve pressure on the club delegates. Thank you for supporting our association and enabling us to continue to deliver this service to our netball community.

Travel to this carnival will be via private transport, so please ensure that you check with your managers what time you are expected to arrive at the venue.
