Port Stephens netball courting successful partnership


Hundreds of netballers will return to the courts next month with a spring in their step, eagerly anticipating a big 2024.

Youngsters from the Port Stephens and Nelson Bay associations are scheduled back at Raymond Terrace and the Tomaree Sport Complex from Saturday 4 May.

It heralds a new season, with strong participation numbers again, along with a familiar sponsor on board in Greater Bank.

With a court rejuvenation completed over the summer, it will be a particularly exciting start for Port Stephens Netball Association’s (PSNA) 600 members.

Greater Bank’s support is expected to contribute to 80 athletes participating in the club’s representative program, too.

After a fantastic 2023, president Jodi Cassar PSM said PSNA was looking forward to even better 2024 for its rep teams.

“We want to go one better at State Titles this year, building off the great success from 12 months ago,” she stated.

“The close rivalry with neighbouring Nelson Bay Netball Association always provides a terrific on-game match up, with fabulous mateship on and off the court displayed between the two associations.

“The Greater Bank partnership is so important to the PSNA representative program.

“So, we are thrilled to be working together for another year.”

Greater Bank Raymond Terrace branch manager Khadine Campany said helping netballers learn and grow was a great source of pride.

“Selection into a representative team is a wonderful achievement for a youngster,” she added.

“Reducing the cost of participation helps these athletes make the most of that opportunity.

“The passion of the Port Stephens and Nelson Bay associations for their netball is fantastic and it’s shared by us at Greater Bank.

“So, we can’t wait to see all the photos and hear about their time at State Titles later this year.”
