Who we are
Mandurah Netball Association was formed to provide a netball competition that was welcoming to all ages and levels of players.
We aim to develop players, umpires & coaches, and to give them a good foundation and continuing development, to further their career in Netball.
Mandurah netball is the best way to get your pathway to higher netball, and the Fever in Time Program for our stars of tomorrow.
We run competitions for players from 6 years old, through our clubs and schools in the Mandurah area.
These competitions are called
NetSetGo for girls and boys 6-10 years, in Winter and Spring.
Junior Winter & Spring for girls and boy 11-17years.
Senior Winter & Spring for ladies 18year and over.
Each year we participate in the Netball WA run State Participation Championships, competing against other Associations around the State.
We also have teams who compete with other Associations in a higher level of competition called Metro League.
Lastly we try to send a few teams each year to compete with teams around the country and from New Zealand, on the Gold Coast.
History of Mandurah Netball Association
Mandurah Netball Association began through the hard work and determination of the Life members you see on the wall in our First Aid room. Along with many other hard-working people, these ladies are the foundation Mandurah Netball is based on. The current committee endeavours to continue their hard work for the Netball Community of Mandurah.
We started with two grass courts on the foreshore near where the Tourist Information Center is today.
We moved to Thomson street with a few bitumen courts, which were quickly increased, toilet facilities shared with the footy boys, and a shed to sell lollies and drinks from. Through the hard work and dedication of past committee, players, umpires and coaches, you have a much nicer and larger place to play netball.
Today we have 10 plexipave courts, equipment sheds, shelters, change rooms, toilet blocks and offices. The hall although built by the Association, and our courts, are maintained and rented for use by the City of Mandurah. Many other community groups use the hall so they too benefit from the hard work of our past and current members.
We have been hoping for over 10 years to gain more courts, to allow us to run our competition as other Associations do, on one day. Currently, we run 3 days a week with the majority of our games on a Saturday, our Seniors competition on a Monday night, and our youngest players on a Friday after school. This puts a lot of pressure on our Committee, who are all volunteers and need to find time to benefit you all. The City of Mandurah has not been able to assist us as there is no suitable land available in Mandurah. At present, although we have commissioned a feasibility study and assessment, jointly paid for by the Department Of Local Government Sport And Cultural Industries, the City of Mandurah and ourselves, the only land identified was within the Murray Shire as suitable for use. This Federal land has been designated for Sports activities, but any development of the site for use by Mandurah Netball would be at least 10+ years away.
