THE Manx Netball Association will be hosting its sixth Annual Club Netball Festival this weekend at the NSC.
As part of the Department of Leisure and Tourism-sponsored Sports Challenge Series, netballers will come from far and wide to take part in this exciting event. A total of 14 teams will go head to head on the first day to secure their positions in Sunday’s events. Ones to watch include last year’s second-placed Harrogate Pheonix A, sister team Harrogate Challengers, DMH and Evesham Reds who have won in three previous visits.
Manx team Route 1 Connections have teamed up with Thompson Travel’s Lesley Patterson and Zoe Shimmin and will be a force to reckon with as will Premier Division leaders SMP Ballasalla and another strong Manx contingent C&S Joinery.
The action gets underway at 9am on Saturday morning.
