As we are heading into the holidays, there will be no netball for the next three weekends. Take the time to relax, rejuvenate and then be ready to get back into the netball atmosphere when we recommence next school term on the July 23.

This approaching weekend will see our representative teams for 12s, 13s, 14s and 15s venture down to Wollongong to take part in the annual State Age Championships. We wish all of our girls the best of luck and praise the patience and dedication displayed by coaches and managers throughout this year’s string of carnivals that have all lead up to this exciting event. As always, the efforts of the umpires who have volunteered to represent our association are highly appreciated and respected. We extend endless thanks to umpires who will be accompanying the teams this weekend - Caitlin Roberts, Sam Edwards and Amelia Johnson. We couldn’t do it without you! To keep updated with the girls’ progress at State Age this weekend, please visit our Facebook page, Grafton Netball Association.

Thank you to all those who participated in our members survey. We appreciate your time and effort and will do our best to ensure that your feedback is put to good use, helping to make your netball experience and our association even better.

B Grade will be split into B1 and B2; the top six teams will play for the winning title of B1, with the remainder of the teams will verse each other for victory within the B2 division.

A reminder to everyone that our All age carnival will take place on August 7. Nominations will open when we return back to netball after the holidays. Thank you!
