NET­BALL

THE Whit­sun­day Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion will be host­ing a mixed Net­ball car­ni­val at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park this Satur­day from 11am-4pm.

The car­ni­val is open to all mixed teams and reg­is­tra­tion costs $100 per team with a min­i­mum of seven play­ers.

No pre­vi­ous net­ball ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary but all par­tic­i­pants must wear en­closed shoes, ap­pro­pri­ate sport­ing at­tire and be aged 15-years and over to play.

The Whit­sun­day Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion held a se­nior signup and reg­is­tra­tion night for their weekly so­cial net­ball com­pe­ti­tion on Wed­nes­day night.

The com­mu­nity based com­pe­ti­tion is open to both men and women and will be held ev­ery Wed­nes­day at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park net­ball courts.

Whit­sun­day Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion me­dia rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bec Thom­sen said weekly so­cial net­ball would only go ahead if in­ter­est was there.

“Be proac­tive and get a team to­gether for the car­ni­val this weekend be­cause the only way weekly so­cial net­ball will go ahead is if we have enough teams to sup­port a lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion,” she said. “There is no age limit so par­ents can en­joy a game with their chil­dren who are over the age of 15. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to get ac­tive.”

A bar­beque lunch will be avail­able on the day.

The next gen­eral meet­ing will be on Tues­day, April 1 at the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles club­house from 6pm. The meet­ing will be open to all play­ers and team af­fil­i­ates.

Those who are in­ter­ested in join­ing but missed the op­por­tu­nity at yes­ter­day’s sign-on are en­cour­aged to at­tend the gen­eral meet­ing to reg­is­ter.

The sea­son will com­mence on Wed­nes­day, April 23 and all match en­quiries are to be made to the team cap­tains.
