THIS Saturday finally sees the start of the 2016 Grafton Netball season. We hope all our players are ready and keen to leap into the competition.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone back on the court this weekend!

REP NEWS

 

Our representative teams played in their first carnivals of the season on Sunday. Our 17s enjoyed playing experienced teams at our Grafton courts while our junior teams travelled to Nambucca to experience different competition.

Carnivals are a great tool for coaches to test team combinations and make adjustments to help strengthen players. Our coaches and players always strive for improvement. Thanks to our coaches, managers and players for their hard work and we look forward to a prosperous season to come.

A reminder to teams who use courts for training sessions, please note courts 1 to 5 are booked by representative teams on Thursday afternoons from 4.30-6.30pm. Please take this into consideration when planning future training sessions.
