Sun sets on opening day at State Champs

The opening day of the 2015 Netball NSW State Championships has all wrapped up in the Illawarra.

From a glorious sunrise, we were blessed with beautiful weather to enjoy the first day of three days of non-stop netball action!

Players, coaches, officials, volunteers and spectators from all across New South Wales enjoyed the first day of action following this morning’s Parade of Districts, which saw Hastings Valley crowned winners to get the day underway.
