NETBALLERS will hit the courts for round four of the local competition at Westward Park this weekend with a A/B Grade clash between the undefeated GHS Underminers and the red hot Rhino Rebels shaping as the match of the week.

While the Underminers missed out on action against Redmen Jacaranda Hotel last weekend, they were dominant in their last match against Rhinos Purple and will need to refind that form against the Rebels who narrowly downed GHS Spirit last week 25-21.

Coaching News

We will be hosting coaching workshops tomorrow. The workshops will be run by coaching co-ordinator Kylie Rainbow.

10am: 7/8s and 9/10s coaches

11am: 11/12s and D grade coaches.

This will be an excellent opportunity to pick up some more tips, as well as a chance to have any coaching questions answered.

Umpire news

We would like to remind all of our young, new and aspiring umpires that some of our senior badged umpires will be out and about tomorrow to offer mentoring and support.

Feel free to ask Samantha, Maddie, Amelia or Rhiannon for help and feedback while you're umpiring and between games.

We want all of our umpires to feel confident and comfortable with their ability on the sideline, so never be afraid to ask for assistance.

No player is permitted to tape jewellery of any kind.

The only exceptions to this rule are wedding rings or medical alert bracelets.

We would also like to urge all umpires to read up on the rules regarding injury times to stay updated with the latest rules of the game.

Crazy Hair and Sock Day

GNA will be taking part in Crazy Hair and Sock Day tomorrow. We will have a stall set up for those who would like to get their hair sprayed, for just a $2 donation.

Please support this wonderful project as either a team or individual. A donation tin will be passed around throughout tomorrow, so get your team together and be creative with your hair or socks, or go wild and do both. Let's work together to raise funds for childhood cancer.

Court work


Due to our courts undergoing maintenance work, there may be a shortage of available courts for training purposes during the next few weeks. Please be mindful of the work being done and stay off courts that are closed. There may be dust in the air from the grinding down of the court so please be aware of this and take the appropriate action if needed. We appreciate your patience.

Representative news

Our representative teams will be spending this Sunday at the Lower Clarence rep carnival. Travel to this carnival will be by private vehicle, so please ensure that you check with your managers what time you are expected to arrive at the Lower Clarence courts. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to ask your team manager. Have a good weekend girls.
