About the Australian Netball League

In 2008, coinciding with the introduction of the trans-Tasman netball league, Netball Australia introduced the Australian Netball League (ANL); a competition to bridge the gap between State League competition and the elite level by providing a national pathway for players, coaches, umpires, score bench and technical officials.

Between 2008 and 2014, Netball NSW fielded two sides in the competition – the Netball NSW Blues and Netball NSW Waratahs, the latter which were crowned undefeated Champions in 2011. In 2015 and 2016 only the Netball NSW Waratahs participated.

With the introduction of Suncorp Super Netball in 2017, Netball Australia announced each ANL team would sit alongside an SSN Club as a feeder side to the elite competition. Netball NSW’s footprint would again extend to two teams with the birth of the Canberra GIANTS as the feeder side to GIANTS Netball, while the Netball NSW Waratahs would align with the NSW Swifts.

Netball NSW also has a proud history of producing the ANL’s Most Valuable Players;
Narelle Esther (2008)
