DOOLEYS extends support of State League

Netball NSW is pleased to announce Major Partner DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club has extended its long-running partnership for a further two years.

Based in Lidcombe in Sydney’s western suburbs, DOOLEYS is an active community partner and proudly supports local, community and elite netball in NSW.

The organisation has been a partner of Netball NSW since 2007, and will continue to be the naming rights sponsor of the Sydney Metropolitan State League competition – the premier netball competition in New South Wales, offering week in and out competition for the state’s most talented netballers, coaches, umpires and administrators.

“DOOLEYS is proud to once again be on board as the naming rights partner of the DOOLEYS State League,” said DOOLEYS Chairman Mr John Munce.

“We look forward to another year of exciting and tough competition, this year in Netball NSW’s brand new home at Netball Central, Sydney Olympic Park.”

Netball NSW Chief Executive Officer Carolyn Campbell was thrilled to announce the partnership extension, saying the support DOOLEYS offered netball in NSW was invaluable.

“DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club have been wonderful supporters of netball in NSW, and I’m thrilled that this fantastic partnership will continue for another two years,” Campbell said.

“John Munce and his team have been invaluable in their backing not only of our organisation, but of our grassroots players, coaches, umpires and administrators who are the backbone of the State League competition.

“2015 is a new era for Netball in NSW, however I’m excited that DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club will continue to offer their support along the way,” Campbell concluded.

The 2015 DOOLEYS State League begins next Monday evening, 9 February, with the first teams to contest the competition in Netball NSW’s new $35 million centre of excellence, Netball Central.

Eight divisions will contest across four nights throughout the 21-week competition; Divisions 5 and 6 on Monday evenings, Divisions 7 and 8 on Tuesday evenings, Waratah Cup (Division 1) and Division 2 on Wednesday evenings, and Divisions 3 and 4 on Thursday evenings.
