All clubs need to be aware of their canteen commitments for the season. For the junior grade time slots - 11.30 and 12.30 - we have attempted to place the team playing on court 3 on duty to allow parents to complete their commitment during their child’s game. For the senior time slots, your commitment will either be before or after your game to allow for all teams in your club to meet their own commitments and relieve pressure on the club delegates. Thank you for supporting our association and enabling us to continue to deliver this service to our netball community
