NetFest is Netball Australia’s mass-participation netball event, offering a choice of traditional (outdoor) or beach netball tournaments, supported by a range of social activities on the Gold Coast, the ideal location for netball’s ultimate end-of-season trip.

In September 2011, the inaugural NetFest attracted 62 teams. The following year, a whopping 134 teams from around Australia and New Zealand descended on the Gold Coast for this huge celebration of netball, fun and friendship, and even more teams are expected to sign up for NetFest in 2013, which will be held from October 17 to 20.

‘Come and join me and thousands of netballers from around Australia and New Zealand at NetFest this October’, says netball living legend Liz Ellis. ‘NetFest is all about doing what you love: playing netball, meeting new people, catching up with old mates and just having a ball on the Gold Coast. It’s so much fun, and an incredibly rewarding few days – don’t miss it!’

Anyone over 18 years of age can be a part of NetFest; you can be social or super competitive, male or female, a netball newbie or an aspiring Aussie Diamond. Your biggest decision will be choosing between traditional (outdoor) netball or the exciting new beach format. Either way, make sure you sign up to receive our regular email updates, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest NetFest news.

NetFest is presented by Netball Australia, and proudly supported by the Queensland government through Tourism and Events Queensland.
