Twenty netball teams competed in the annual all-ages carnival hosted by the Brunswick-Byron Netball Association at the Mullumbimby courts on the weekend.

Teams from across five age groups came from the Tweed, Casino, Lismore as well as the Ballina and local associations.

The carnival is all about giving young players a chance to play more sport, Brunswick-Byron club member Narelle Anderton said.

Representative players go away this weekend, so it is a chance for all the other regular Saturday players to get more experience playing other similar-aged players, she said.

Some of the youngest players from the area in Net, Set Go development teams also get their first chance to play on hard courts with proper rules.

‘It is a great experience for them. They have a lot of new rules to deal with to play at that standard,’ she said.
