Pres­i­dent steps down

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Looklocal -

AF­TER 24 years at the helm, Como res­i­dent Ju­dith Pi­latti has de­cided to step down as pres­i­dent of the Fre­man­tle Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Fall­ing in love with net­ball in Col­lie at the age of 10, the Penrhos Col­lege em­ployee played the sport all through her youth in var­i­ous teams both in Perth and Col­lie.

Since be­com­ing pres­i­dent in the ’90s, she has over­seen a num­ber of changes at FNA, in­clud­ing the ex­pan­sion from 14 to 28 play­ing courts, a big jump in play­ing num­bers and im­prove­ments to ameni­ties.

Ms Pi­latti said she would take many fond mem­o­ries of her time with her.

“Be­ing able to sup­port a Peo­ple with Dis­abil­i­ties com­pe­ti­tion, a tour of Sin­ga­pore with one of our open teams and see­ing over 5000 mem­bers play­ing each Satur­day at Gibson Park to name a few,” she said.

“When I came to the po­si­tion there were 309 teams and last year we had 514 teams.

“I will still be at Fre­man­tle Net­ball each Satur­day as I co-or­di­nate six Penrhos Boarder teams and coach one of them.”

Son­dra An­der­son has been ap­pointed the new FNA pres­i­dent.
