PERTH Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion won two flags at the As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onships held at their home ground on the long week­end.

The As­so­ci­a­tion won the open di­vi­sion one and Un­der-13 di­vi­sion seven grand fi­nals.

Perth Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (PNA) hosted the Cham­pi­onships at Matthews Net­ball Cen­tre with Net­ball WA for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, at­tract­ing more than 30 as­so­ci­a­tions, 259 teams, in­clud­ing eight from Sin­ga­pore and five indige­nous teams, and 39 di­vi­sions from un­der-12 to open.

The home as­so­ci­a­tion won two flags over the week­end: open di­vi­sion one and un­der-13 di­vi­sion seven.

Nine teams played in the No Lim­its Di­vi­sion for play­ers with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity.

PNA president Elaine Clu­cas said the No Lim­its Di­vi­sion had dou­bled from last year.

“It’s a re­ally heart-warm­ing thing to watch that di­vi­sion,” Clu­cas said.

“Hav­ing re­gional teams mixed with the met­ro­pol­i­tan teams and the No Lim­its and in­ter­na­tional teams, it’s just a great at­mos­phere.”

PNA un­der-13 di­vi­sion 7 player Brook­lyn Maxville.
