Amongst the fun and chilled island vibes of the 2014 Oceania Netball Cup, children who were sitting on the sidelines got a chance to get involved with the Australia Post Come and Try Clinic.
Hosted by Australia Post One Netball Ambassador and NSW Swift Kimberlee Green, kids from as young as three years old wandered over to the ANZ NetSetGO Activity Centre to join in the fun and games, as well as get a photo with their netball hero.
Green’s Australian and Swift teammate Caitlin Thwaites was also wandering the courts, offering encouragement and high fives!
The Come and Try Clinic was one of many being held across the country over the past few months, all aiming to encouraging more children – young and old, boys and girls – of all backgrounds an introduction to netball.
Australia Post Chief Marketing Officer Greg Sutherland said this activity was part of the Australia Post One Netball program which aims to use the power of netball to attract, mobilise and inspire individuals and communities around Australia.
“Netball is such a fantastic game that teaches so many skills that can be applied both on and off the court. We want to break down the barriers and introduce new communities to the sport, regardless of their background.”
Netball Australia CEO Kate Palmer said “It’s great to see the Australia Post One Netball program on the ground in new communities around the country to provide a fun, positive and safe introduction to our sport. With clinics being held in every state and territory, the reach of One Netball is growing from strength to strength.”
