Last Sunday marked another very successful Representative Netball Carnival hosted by the Brunswick Byron Netball Association. 

Teams from Brunswick-Byron, Tweed, Lower Clarence, Ballina, Casino, and Grafton associations competed at the carnival. 

There were approximately 330 players plus coaches, managers, umpires, volunteers, and supporters. 

Although competition was fierce, games are not officially scored.

Representative carnivals are held in order to give players a chance to develop their skills, as they prepare for two sets of statewide championships played in and around Sydney in June and July. 

It was a perfect day for netball, and as always, there were incredible aerial displays by the players as they jostled for possession. 

Teams range in age from U12s through to Opens. 

Netball was the winner.
