Local netballers will soon head to Sydney for the 2013 Netball NSW State Age Championships. Ballina Netball Association will field four teams in Divisions Two and Three and the Brunswick Byron Netball Association will field two teams in Division Four starting on Saturday 29 June and concluding on Monday 1 July.

Representing Ballina will be 15U Division Two, 14U Division Three, 13U Division Two and 12U Division Two sides, split across two of the three championship venues. Brunswick-Byron will be represented in the 14U and 13U age groups at Parramatta Auburn Netball Association.

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.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
