Netball season draws interest
NETBALL: The netball season has been running for the past few weeks and is off to a good start for Mundubbera.
Junior players have increased this year with additional teams in the competition, while the senior netball teams have remained steady.
Funky Bunch player Shannon Whelan said she believed it had the biggest club participation than any other sport in Mundubbera.
“I’ve been playing netball for around 8-10 years now and seen players come and go,” Mrs Whelan said.
“I’ve always played it and absolutely love it and my team is unreal, it’s a very good team.
“I think netball is the biggest club membership we have in the community.”
The club itself is continually growing and expanding.
“The season’s off to a good start, it’s good to finally be back playing it and we have lots of fun moments on the court,” Mrs Whelan said.
“I believe netball is all about the fitness and letting the girls have a good time.”
Mundubbera Netball Association president Lisa Whelan said the team competed at the Gayndah Citrus Cup at the weekend.
“The team played very well against Gayndah but were defeated,” Mrs Whelan said.
“We were a little rushed with sorting out the teams but everyone should be proud of themselves and for their efforts.”
“We have six senior teams and around six to seven junior teams this season, it’s looking very optimistic indeed.”
Although player numbers have improved this season, the netball association is always looking for more people.
“We could always have a few more players especially in the senior teams, the game is for all ages,” Mrs Whelan said.
The Juniors play every Tuesday night from 4-5.30pm at the Archer Park Sports complex.
The Seniors play every Wednesday night from 6-9pm at the Mundubbera State School.
Netball is off to a great start this season.
