Six sides contest netball

Netball: Play is back for the season, with matches kicking off with a friendly game on Tuesday night.

This year six teams will compete in a single division for the indoor netball season.

Despite some roster issues due to a late entry, the teams enjoyed three games of netball.

Six teams competed at the Stanthorpe Fitness Centre from 6pm.

The Devils were up first, playing against Skippies.

Devils took the lead from the first quarter and eventually won the match at 39-14.

Reigning indoor netball champions the Pink Ladies (pictured) took to the court next against the Divas.

The Divas put up a strong fight but could not defeat the Pink Ladies, which won the match 26-16.

It was a tight game for the final teams to play, Fireflys against Misfits.

The Misfits looked hopeful to win in the first quarter, however the Fireflies took the lead by half time before winning the game with a two-point difference at 23-21.

The SDRC Stanthorpe Fitness Centre apologised to the teams for the inconvenience caused by the rostering issues.

They are encouraging feedback from the teams which played on Tuesday night.

The fitness centre hopes in future the netball competition will run as successfully and enjoyably as it did in previous seasons.
