“This carnival helps to develop representative teams and prepare them for higher level competition throughout the season.
“It also provided opportunity to develop our umpires, coaches and managers, our association was supported throughout the day by a large group of volunteers who helped to make this event a success.”

Mareeba Netball is encouraging people to join in playing netball during this time and provide a fundraising opportunity for their U15 State Age team who will travel to the Sunshine Coast in July.
