The long-awaited return of community netball in metropolitan Melbourne is inching closer. Metro Melbourne can look forward to a return of junior netball, which at this stage is scheduled for Sunday 1 November, but we wait for confirmation of a return date over the next week. We thank you for being so patient and we appreciate everything you have done to support and stay connected to your netball community. It’s not long now and we will see you all back on court.
For regional Victoria, people 18 years and younger can continue to participate in netball competitions and programs. Adults continue with non-contact training at outdoor venues.
Today we throw our weight behind the mighty Melbourne Vixens! They are #DoingItForVIC and doing it for every member of our community who has missed playing our great game.
