NETBALL

A NEW sea­son of mixed netball is un­der­way in the Whit­sun­days.

As a re­sult of last year’s suc­cess­ful com­pe­ti­tion, a mixed tour­na­ment has re­turned to Wed­nes­day nights.

The sea­son will run for eight weeks, hav­ing al­ready com­menced play at the start of the month.

The round-robin for­mat will see each team play five short­ened games each night.

Twelve teams are cur­rently regis­tered, in­clud­ing out­fits from Hamil­ton and Hay­man Is­lands.

“The com­pe­ti­tion is all about hav­ing fun,” Whit­sun­day Netball As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Liz Youd said.

“As the foot­ball sea­son has ended, this is a great way for the guys to be a part of our as­so­ci­a­tion and join in the fun and play with or against their wives, part­ners, mums and sis­ters.”

The mixed sea­son fol­lows a bril­liant ladies’ sea­son, which saw The Buzz and Shoot­ing Stars win­ners.

The Buzz claimed the Agrade ti­tle with vic­tory over Mid­gets, while Shoot­ing Stars took down Seadogs to win the B-grade crown. Michelle Cross­ley’s stel­lar per­for­mance in the grand fi­nal was recog­nised with the A-grade MVP ti­tle.

Like­wise Cas­sidy Webb starred for Shoot­ing Stars in the B-grade de­cider.

The An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing for the Whit­sun­day Netball As­so­ci­a­tion will be held at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark’s netball courts on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 18 at 6.30pm.

In other news, the Bendigo Bank has do­nated $2000 worth of post pads to the Whit­sun­day Netball As­so­ci­a­tion.
