Almost time for State Champs – Masters

Seventeen teams will converge on the Genea Netball Centre in Sydney Olympic Park this weekend to compete in the 2018 BING LEE State Championships – Masters.

Competitors from all over NSW will take to the courts on Saturday and Sunday, 19-20 May, in what will be the final staging of the competition in its current form.

From 2019 the State Championships – Masters will be held alongside the annual Social Masters, a decision that was made after Netball NSW’s competitions review.

However there will be no storage of enthusiastic netballers going head-to-head over the weekend across two divisions: Over 35s and Over 40s.

Teams will be travelling from areas as far afield as Woolgoogla on the Far North Coast to make the Masters a weekend to remember.

Played in the Genea Netball Centre’s state-of-the-art facilities, with the winning teams in each age division will be crowned at the end of the two-day tournament.

Both winners and runners up will be awarded a trophy and patches at a Presentation Ceremony.

Speaking ahead of the tournament, Claire Dale – Competitions Manager at Netball NSW – said the Masters always held a special place on the organisation’s calendar.

“There is always a huge appetite for competitive netball and the Masters has always been exceptionally popular,” she said.

“When we first played it at the Genea Netball Centre (then called Netball Central) in 2016 we have seen the number of teams increase.

“I would like to thanks BING LEE for their support of this year’s competition, it is hugely appreciated, and very much look forward to welcoming all players, coaches, team managers, supporters and staff to what will be a very enjoyable weekend in our amazing Sydney Olympic Park precinct.”
