There has never been a more exciting time to be involved with netball in the state of New South Wales. Following the overwhelming success of the 2015 Netball World Cup held in Sydney last August, the sport is riding a wave of momentum.
The popularity of netball is at an all-time high, with Netball NSW experiencing increased grassroots participation numbers and record Membership; while the organisation’s elite team, the NSW Swifts enjoy unprecedented support.
The next twelve months will also see some significant changes to the State’s competitions calendar, most notably the commencement of the Netball NSW Premier League, which will provide bridging opportunities in to the Australian Netball League and subsequent ANZ Championship.
