NORANDA Netball Association won three flags at the Association Championships held at Matthews Netball Centre on the long weekend.

The Association won the Under-13 division two, Under-14 division three and Under-17 division three grand finals.

Perth Netball Association (PNA) hosted the Championships at Matthews Netball Centre with Netball WA for the second consecutive year attracting more than 30 associations, 259 teams, including eight from Singapore and five Indigenous teams, and 39 divisions from Under-12 to open.

The home association won two flag over the weekend – open division one and Under-13 division seven.

Nine teams played in the No Limits Division for players with an intellectual disability.

PNA president Elaine Clucas said the No Limits Division had doubled from last year.

“It’s a really heart warming thing to watch that division,” Clucas said.

“Having regional teams mixed with the metropolitan teams and the No Limits and international teams, it’s just a great atmosphere.”

Netball WA chief executive Simon Taylor said the Championships represented an opportunity for players and officials across the netball community to come together.

“It’s also a great pleasure to bring games inside the State Netball Centre for a second consecutive year, it is fitting that our largest event is played on our biggest stage,” Taylor said.
