Netball NSW is delighted to announce the 12 athletes selected to represent the state at the 2020 17/U National Netball Championships in April.

This year the Nationals will take place in Hobart, Tasmania from the 18-23 April, at the city’s Netball and Sports Centre.

Teams from each state and territory will contest championships in the 17/U and 19/U age groups. Gold medal matches will be played on Thursday 23 April to decide the 2020 National Netball Champions in both divisions.

Last year NSW took home silver medals in both age groups and will be looking to go one better in 2020.

Netball NSW Head of Netball Nikki Horton said it was a very important milestone for every athlete selected.

“Nationals are one of the big benchmarks on along the Netball NSW pathway and to be selected for a state team is a huge achievement,” she said.

“Last year NSW was very competitive in reaching both the 19/U and 17/U Grand Finals and in 2020 we’ll be hoping to take the next step and bring silverware back to the state.

“I would like to commend every athlete who took part in what was a very long, and rigorous selection process, especially the athletes who have made it to the end.

“We now look forward to working with them and the coaching team as we get ready for Tasmania.”
