Greater Bank has supported grassroots netball across regional NSW for more than two decades.
In 2021, that support will extend to 14 regional associations across the state, including Manning Valley Netball Association.
Greater Bank first linked with the association in 2020 and will continue its partnership this year. With more than 300 members and six clubs, our support will enable the association to purchase new training equipment and uniforms as well as make a number of upgrades to court facilities.
According to Manning Valley Netball Association President, Janine Kennewell, the funds will go a long way towards ensuring a safe and successful season for players and spectators.
“We are a small regional sporting club that relies heavily on volunteers and the dedication of our members. Our appreciation of Greater Banks support can be felt right across the association,” said Janine.
“Our ultimate aim is to ensure we can keep membership fees to a minimum and the sponsorship funds will enable us to do just that by helping subsidise equipment and upgrades to our facilities which will be enjoyed by all.”
Greater Bank Head of Marketing and Customer Experience, Matt Hingston, is thrilled to see the support for regional netball expand this year as we celebrate 75 years of operation and giving back to the communities in which we operate.
“Supporting the community is a principal Greater Bank has stood by for 75 years. As we celebrate this milestone, we are excited to extend our long-standing support of netball across our areas of operation,”

“At Greater Bank we are committed to supporting the communities that supports us and it’s this mantra that again links us to the game at all levels, especially our relationship with the 14 regional netball association sponsorships of which we are extremely proud to be a part of.
“After enduring a disrupted 2020 season due to COVID, not doubt the players are very much looking forward to getting back on the court this year. We wish them all a successful and enjoyable 2021.”
Beyond the support provided to netball associations this season, Greater Bank is also playing a key role in the elite netball pathways as the major sponsor of the Hunter, Western Region and Central Coast Academies of Sport netball programs.
