Early chance for fans to see Fever make their pitch

North Coast Times - - SPORT -

WEST Coast Fever fans will get their first glimpse of Su­per Net­ball op­po­si­tion a fort­night ahead of the open­ing round when the Fever hosts the Syd­ney-based Giants in a pre-sea­son match.

Fever head coach Stacey Marinkovich said the Fever-Giants clash at Arena Joon­dalup on Fe­bru­ary 5 would be an im­por­tant test for her team.

“I’ve been im­pressed by the in­ten­sity and com­mit­ment the group has brought to their train­ing through­out pre-sea­son but it’s im­por­tant we have an av­enue through which to trans­fer that to a match en­vi­ron­ment,” she said.

Fever mem­bers will gain free ac­cess to the sta­dium for the game af­ter col­lect­ing their mem­ber­ship packs pre-match from the club’s ac­ti­va­tion zone, Fever Al­ley.

For non-mem­bers, tick­ets are $20, un­der-16s $10, and chil­dren un­der three en­ter free.

Mem­ber­ship pack col­lec­tion will be avail­able from 8.30am, with Fever Al­ley set to open at 9.30am and the game to start at 11am.

A cur­tain-raiser be­tween the Western Sting and an in­vi­ta­tional side will be at 9am.

Fever’s first home game of the 2017 Su­per Net­ball sea­son is against the Queens­land Fire­birds at Perth Arena on March 3.
