One Netball Community Awards

Is your Club, Association or someone in your netball community actively making positive change and inspiring others to create welcoming and more inclusive netball environments?

Nominate them for the One Netball Community Awards thanks to Netball Australia and Australia Post!

Netball Australia and Australia Post want to recognise and reward individuals, Clubs and Associations who are making the sport of netball more inclusive through the Australia Post One Netball Community Awards.

Launched nationally today, the Australia Post One Netball Community Awards will highlight the champions of change across the Australian netball community who go above and beyond to welcome everyone to the sport they love.

Australia Post One Netball Ambassador and NSW Swift Kimberlee Green said the Awards are about celebrating local champions who share their love of netball with everyone and welcoming new faces into their clubhouses.

“Netball Clubs and Associations are the lifeblood of local communities, filled with passionate people promoting our sport and making it inclusive for everyone to take part, irrespective of their skill level, ability or background,” Green said.

“The One Netball Community Awards will recognise these people from the sidelines to the centre circle and share their stories to inspire others to support more inclusive netball environments.
