Tournament hosting and promotion

Tournaments are a great way to provide an opportunity for coaches to further develop their team in preparation for the Netball Victoria pathway competitions. Tournaments also allow coaches to increase player skills, participate in extra sessions, increase player confidence and trial different combinations on court.

Netball Victoria proudly supports our affiliates hosting association tournaments and has a dedicated page on our website where you can view a tournament calendar and see those tournaments currently open for entry.

On the upcoming tournaments page you will find a link to an online tournament form where you can request your tournament be advertised on our website and calendar.
