At the annual Netball NSW State Dinner administrators, players, coaches, officials, family and friends gather to celebrate the season that was as all areas of the sport are acknowledged and applauded.
In addition to acknowledging the performances of the NSW representative teams at the National Netball Championships, Australian Netball League and Suncorp Super Netball, a number of individuals are honoured at the State Dinner.
