Summer league netball action from last year’s competition.

Junior, college and senior summer league netball at Howick Pakuranga Netball Centre (HPNC) is starting soon.

The junior competition – grades Year 3 – 8 – will be held on Tuesdays and begins on October 19 with game times at 4pm, 4.50pm and 5.40pm. Fees for years 3 and 4 are $175 per team, years 5 and 6 $210 per team and years 7 and 8 $245 per team. Registrations close October 12.

College and senior matches are on Wednesdays beginning October 20 with game times at 5.30pm, 6.20pm and 7.10pm. The grades will be college girls, college mixed, college boys, ladies and senior mixed.

A maximum of three boys can take the court at any one time (mixed grades), one in each third. Fees are $350 per team and registrations close October 13.

It will be an eight-week season and teams will provide their own umpires.

Netball administrator Tracey Limond said, “Summer league is all about getting out (after being contained to our houses) and enjoying the longer evenings playing netball with your friends and whanau.

“We’re particularly pleased about offering a college boys grade this year, which provides a pathway for boys to continue developing their skills in the game.”

HPNC’s focus is to open up the sport of netball to more and more people who wouldn’t traditionally have had the opportunity.

“Examples are our Game Changers (Sommerville Special School) invitational team, a growing walking netball competition and having all boys teams in our Wednesday schools competition and summer league,” said Limond.
