THE State Netball Centre’s newly formed show court will host West Australian Netball League grand finals this Sunday.

More than 1100 fans will be able to pack the venue to watch an exhibition match, the 18 and under grand final, the reserves grand final and the league grand final.

The West Coast Warriors have qualified a team in all three divisions for the second consecutive year and the Coastal Sharks will take the court in both the reserves and league competitions.

A win for the Coastal Sharks in the reserves would mean a sixth consecutive flag, while their league side is chasing their first title since 2011.

In the 18 and under final, the Warriors will be up against it when they face the undefeated Perth Lions.

Netball WA chief executive Simon Taylor said he expected three close finals.

“This season has been one of the most exciting in recent memory, and Sunday afternoon is shaping to be a fitting end to the year,” he said.

“Congratulations must go to the West Coast Warriors on qualifying all three teams once again, but I’m sure they will face tough opposition in what will be three great games.”

All games will be live tweeted through Netball WA’s Twitter account, with the league game to be streamed on Netball WA’s Facebook page.

Entry to the State Netball Centre on Grand Final Day is $15 for adults, $10 for concession and free for people 17 and under under.

Entry is also free for WANL season ticket holders and West Coast Fever Members upon presentation of their Membership cards and valid ID.

Doors open at 9am, with the exhibition match at 10am and the 18 and under grand final at 12pm.

The reserves grand final starts at 2pm and the league grand final will begin at 4pm.
