A total of 305 teams will converge over three venues to contest in three days of back-to-back netball in one of the biggest sporting events in the southern hemisphere; the Netball NSW State Age Championships.

Major event partner, The Kids’ Cancer Project, once again joins Netball NSW for one of our marquee calendar events, which will feature over 3500 players from 91 associations.

The 45th State Age Championships will be held on the first weekend of the winter school holiday period and sees Campbelltown Netball Association host the top two divisions (Championship and Division Two), Division Three played out at Bankstown City Netball Association, while Division Four will be contested at the newly-reopened Parramatta Auburn Netball Association.

With four divisions in four age groups – 15U, 14U, 13U and 12U – the State Age Championship will showcase potential future stars of Australia’s number one female participation.
