Gunnedah Netball Association president Therese Jones said the support was vital to help local women and girls with the opportunity to play netball. She said the Greater has also supplied a marquee for the association to use at games and events.
Ms Bull said the support for local netball was part of the Greater’s broader support for the game in regional NSW.
She said the Greater is supporting netball because it is a popular, grass-roots sport in Gunnedah and other communities in Australia.
“Netball is a great Australian sport that is keeping women and girls active as well as teaching them team work, commitment and about being a good sport,” Ms Bull said.
“We think it is important to get behind a sport played by so many women and girls as female sports don’t always receive the same attention or funding as male sports,” she said.
“We’re investing in the future of local netball and encouraging the girls to start saving for their future too.”
The local netball season runs through until September 5.
