Brunswick–Byron Netball Association has been crowned State Champions at the 2015 Netball NSW State Age Championships, which was contested across four venues in Sydney’s northwest region from Saturday 27 to Monday 29 June.

Their 13/U side finished the tournament with 16 wins, finishing two points ahead of runners-up Woolgoolga to claim the Champions title.

Brunswick–Byron also fielded a 14/U team who finished seventh against some of the best netballers from around the state.

More than 3,500 athletes from 294 teams representing 83 associations from across NSW contested this year’s tournament, which was co-hosted by four venues: Baulkham Hills Shire (Championship division), Eastwood Ryde (Division 2), Penrith (Division 3) and Hawkesbury City Netball Associations (Division 4).

Four age groups – 15/U, 14/U, 13/U and 12/U – contested four divisions, showcasing the brightest and best young netballing talent our proud state has to offer.

While addressing the crowd gathered for the closing presentations, Netball NSW president Wendy Archer AM took time to congratulate not just the state champions, but every player, coach, umpire and official who helped make this year’s tournament such a success.

‘What a wonderful, splendid weekend of netball – the weather was terrific, and the standard of netball was right up there to match it. It’s been an absolute pleasure wandering the courts and witnessing the fantastic talent NSW netball has on offer,’ Archer said.

‘I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our hosting associations, their executives, and all the volunteers who have helped not only during the three days of competition, but the many months leading up to this magnificent event. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you for all your support.

‘Thank you for joining us this weekend and we look forward to seeing you again next year for the 48th instalment of the Netball NSW State Age Championships!’ Archer concluded.
