Koori Netball Knockout – Minimbah Echidnas

Minimbah Echidna’s travelled to Newcastle, NSW last weekend to compete at the 18th Koori Netball Knockouts, held at the Charlestown Netball Courts.

This annual tournament is aimed at increasing participation of Aboriginal women in sport and recreation in a fun competitive environment. Team co-ordinator Tracey wrote a post-game wrap up:

“On the 27th and 28th for October the Minimbah Echidna’s Netball Team travelled to Newcastle to compete in the Koori Natball Knockout held in Charlestown, Newcastle. The team played 3 games on the evening of the 27th & 6 games on the day of the 28th. Out of 9 games the team only lost 3 games. On a for and against the team came in fourth place out of 25 teams, this was an excellent result as this was the first time they have competed. This would not of been possible if it wasn’t for the sponsorship received from the JNC Group, a massive thankyou to Jeremy.”
