Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A host of tal­ented State, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional sports­peo­ple will share their hard-won knowl­edge and a few laughs with guests at the Leisure­plex on Satur­day.

The Kar­ratha Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion has or­gan­ised a Sportsper­sons Night as a fundraiser for its up­com­ing bid at the North West Net­ball Cham­pi­onships, which six of its teams will com­pete in.

The as­so­ci­a­tion has re­cruited for­mer in­ter­na­tional net­ball coach and ANZ Cham­pi­onship com­men­ta­tor Sue Gau­dion to be MC on the night, and Red Dog will also pay a visit.

The long list of stars at­tend­ing as pan­el­lists in­clude for­mer ANZ Cham­pi­onship net­baller Arahi Wall, New Zealand bas­ket­baller Aroha Haumaha, Olympic wa­ter polo player and World Iron­man Cham­pi­onship com­peti­tor Belinda Brooks, na­tional fe­male AFL and State soft­ball player Deanne Coates, na­tional fut­sal player Jess Byrne and for­mer West Coast foot­baller An­drew Em­b­ley.

KNA com­mit­tee mem­ber Me­gan Nash said the as­so­ci­a­tion was ex­cited to have so many suc­cess­ful sports­peo­ple on board and guests could look for­ward to a great night.

“Sue Gau­dion will be ask­ing them abut their ex­pe­ri­ences, their ca­reers, their highs, their lows,” she said.

“We’ll be run­ning dif­fer­ent panels through­out the night. We’ll have raf­fles, auc­tions, games. There’ll be a bit of ev­ery­thing re­ally. It should be a good en­ter­tain­ing night.”

Ms Gau­dion will also be run­ning free net­ball clin­ics for ju­nior play­ers on Sun­day.
