Here we go again. It seems like only yesterday that the 2018 DOOLEYS Metro League concluded, but time flies in the world of netball and the 2019 competition gets underway on Monday April 8 at Netball Central in Sydney Olympic Park.
The Metro League is one of the premier competitions in New South Wales, offering weekly competition for some of the metro region’s most talented netballers, coaches, umpires and administrators.
Once again in 2019, 60 teams divided into six divisions of 10 will contest the competition, which will be will be held across three nights weekly (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays) with teams contesting 18 rounds plus Finals.
The 2019 Finals Series will take place in the first three weeks of September with the top four teams in each division qualifying.
Divisions 3 & 4 will be hitting the courts on Monday nights, with divisions 5 & 6 playing on Tuesdays and divisions 1 & 2 taking the Thursday night time-slot.
Netball NSW is also delighted to have Naming Rights Partners DOOLEYS back on board for another year and thanks them for their continued support of netball in NSW.
“You really know netball season is in full swing when the DOOLEYS Metro League gets going,” Claire Dale, Competitions Manager at Netball NSW, says.
“Netball Central is always a hive of activity during the week when hundreds of talented players descend on Sydney Olympic Park to contest what is one of the best level of netball across the state.
“Last year’s competition was one of the best we’ve ever had with massive rivalries growing across all the divisions and I’m sure that will only be enhanced in 2019.
“With so much netball to be played over the next six months I think everyone is very excited by the season ahead and we look forward to welcoming all players, coaches, officials and fans.”
