2017 Australian Champs – GOLD COAST here we come……
The Australian Men’s & Mixed Netball Championships have again secured a first class venue at which to stage the annual championships.
The newly redeveloped Carrara Sports Precinct on Queensland’s GOLD COAST will be home to Australia’s very best Men’s & Mixed netballers, April 16-23. Sunshine State Men’s & Mixed Netball Assoc will be the hosts, and President Carolyn Sweet was tremendously excited at the announcement; “we’re thrilled to welcome more 600 netball enthusiasts to the Gold Coast, and show off our new netball facility. In 2015 we were luck to be playing at the site of the World Championships. In 2017 we will be giving the venue a good test before it hosts the 2018 Commonwealth Games. It will be exciting for everyone involved”.
This year the tournament was a great success, with 34 teams and over 500 participants making their way to Melbourne. Adding to that success, was an unprecedented 8,000+ spectators. It’s hoped that a chance to take a look at the best netball at the this ne Com Games venue, will also attract big spectator numbers.
AMMNA President Grant Crocker was also thrilled at the announcement; “our annual event is getting better and better every year. The quality of play is continues to develop, and really deserves to be staged at Australia’s best venues”.
