SUN­CORP SU­PER NET­BALL

When: Satur­day, June 23

Time: 3pm

Where: USC Sta­dium. Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs

Round 8 of the world’s best net­ball club com­pe­ti­tion is a 2017 grand final re­match be­tween Light­ning and Gi­ants. While Sun­shine Coast dom­i­nated that con­test, its Syd­ney-based ri­val took the points when the two teams met in April this year in the sea­son opener. The on-court con­test will be fierce, but the bat­tle of wits be­tween su­per coaches Noe­line Tau­rua and Julie Fitzger­ald is an in­trigu­ing sub­plot. The ex­pe­ri­enced cam­paign­ers will be hop­ing for not only vic­tory but a raft of bonus points to stay in touch with com­pe­ti­tion front-run­ner, West Coast. Head to Light­ning’s web­site for tick­et­ing in­for­ma­tion.

No mass pro­duced or cheap im­ported prod­ucts will be found at this once-a-month event.

Gather your friends and sam­ple spe­cial­ity cof­fee, street food, sweet treats and cold bev­er­ages, lis­ten to lo­cal tal­ented artists and grab a bar­gain.
