Net­ballers turn out

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

The Me­mo­rial Sports­ground came alive on Satur­day with hun­dreds of net­ballers start­ing their 2014 sea­son.

The first day’s games en­abled coaches to work out the best po­si­tions for their play­ers and to find out the abil­ity of any new play­ers in their teams.

Sev­eral new se­nior club teams have en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion in­clud­ing Pu­taruru Col­lege. Teams to gain two wins on Satur­day were United Force, Neme­sis, Pu­taruru Col­lege A, Pan­thers, For­est View High School A, Man­gakino Hawkettes, Toko­roa Intermediate Year 8 Steel­ers, Toko­roa Intermediate Year 7 Pearls and Toko­roa Intermediate Year 8 Magic.

Pri­mary net­ball will start this Satur­day at noon when 20 pri­mary teams will play in their first com­pe­ti­tion games of grad­ing.

North School will have five teams en­tered and it is great to have Bishop Ed­ward Gaines School re­turn to Satur­day net­ball.

All forms, draws and in­for­ma­tion are on the Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre web­site: www.sports­ground­roanet­ball.

Most teams have shown an in­ter­est in want­ing to learn more about um­pir­ing rules and tech­niques. Um­pires class will restart on April 14 from 7pm-8pm in the net­ball pavil­ion.

Most teams are keen for all mem­bers of their team to be up-to-date with ap­pli­ca­tion of rules so that their own play­ing on court is er­ror free.

Fun Ferns will start on Fri­day, May 9, at 5pm at the Sports and Event Cen­tre and run for seven weeks.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms are on the Toko­roa web­site.
