Netball association may face tough decisions

Woy Woy Peninsula Netball Association is unsure how it will recoup financial losses due to the suspension of competition until at least May 2, according to association president Ms Lisa Coakley.

From the cost of uniforms that might not be worn to travel expenses for representative teams that were paid in advance, Ms Coakley said the Association's executive committee would be likely to face some tough decisions.

"Our Association is not as fortunate as neighbouring Gosford and Wyong and we do not have the financial sponsorship backing that they do.

"We are extremely appreciative to Ettalong Diggers who have continued to support our representative teams for the past six years which helps with the fees, but I honestly don't know what is ahead," she said.

Netball NSW confirmed in a statement on March 16 that competitions would not proceed until at least the first week of May.

Netball NSW chief executive Ms Carolyn Campbell said: "Netball NSW will continue to monitor the situation daily, with a formal update (on April 15) to include the latest information on competition start dates plus advice on recommencing training and so on.

"If the situation is to change significantly, an update will be provided earlier," Ms Campbell said.
