Fast Five is new way of thinking for netballers
Fast five netball will be played at the Tokoroa netball courts on July 5. This competition is for registered teams and players only. Very soon the rules and regulations for this competition will be on the website to view.
Players will need to be thinking about strategies to win their games. Shooting for goal outside the goal circle and rolling subs will be in tune for the Fast Five competition.
Teams will need to make sure that they have enough shooters and defence on the court at the same time to ensure goals are scored and the opposition do not score too many. The Tokoroa Fast Five competition will be fun and a change of pace for all teams.
It is important that all players and organisers of teams regularly check out the website for the latest information.
The senior championship competition will have two weeks’ break after the Fast Five competition. The championships will resume on July 26.
There will be no primary netball on the July 5. Competition will return on July 26.
A feature of the primary games on Saturday was the success of intermediate umpires controlling the top grade. These umpires gained their Netball NZ theory examinations recently.
Some primary teams have completed the first round of the Bill Gray Memorial Championships. Tainui Stars are leading the A grade and Cargill Champs the B grade. In C grade, the Amisfield Angels v Strathmore Magic game will be the decider and in D grade, Tainui Idols and David Henry Firebirds are leading on points.
