Netball Club to host mixed twilight comp

Gundagai Netball Club will be hosting a mixed twilight competition from February 8 onwards.

Gundagai Netball Club will commence their Tuesday night mixed social competition on February 8 and organisers are calling out for more teams to be nominated before February 1.

At the time of going to publication, four teams had already expressed interest in playing, and Gundagai Netball Club Registrar and coach, Carmel Lemon hoped to see more players and teams putting their names forward. 

“We have been running this for about five or six years and it is growing and it’s a good little competition,” Ms Lemon said.

“It just gives that opportunity to people who want to play and there is a big emphasis on it being a social competition. 

“We want people to get there teams together and let us know on Facebook or Instagram so we can make sure we have enough teams to go ahead and with this new Play HQ, it’s much easier to register. They simply click on a link, and it takes them directly through the rego.”

The competition is open to players 14 years and above and is ideal for people wanting to get fit and keep social, while it also benefited local netball players that would be playing in the winter competition and the second of Gundagai Netball Club’s social competitions, which will be run later in the year. 

“You pay the $75 or the $95 to play, and that gets you the 2 twilight competitions and it covers your winter competition insurance, so it’s worth it,” Ms Lemon said. 

The Gundagai Netball Club was hopeful that more men and women would want to play in their competition after the Gundagai touch football competition fell by the wayside due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Because there is no touch in Gundagai this year, it’s a chance to dust of those Covid mothballs and have a fun and some good family time,” Lemon said.

For potential players and teams wanting to get involved, Emily Bridgeman, Kay Makeham or Carmel Lemon are the contacts or readers can visit the Gundagai Netball Club on Facebook and Instagram for more information.
