Pepes eye world cup

The last time the PNG netball team, Pepes, attended the World Cup Qualifiers was in 2006 in Suva, Fiji.

The PNG netball team will be eyeing the World Cup Qualifiers in April, to be staged in New Zealand this time around.

The open trials will give national selectors the chance to observe players’ fitness and skills for a possible train on squad to make the team to Auckland for the Netball World Cup Qualifiers 2018.

After a successful finish at the Vanuatu 2017 Pacific Mini Games, PNG Pepes are confident that they can maintain their gold medal winning performance as they prepare for the world qualifiers.

PNG netball has sent out an expression of interest notice to all aspiring Pepes over the festive season, not only to stay fit but turn up at the open trials for the World Cup Qualifiers.

PNG Netball Federation is sending out an important notice to advise players intending to make the cut for the PNG Pepes to turn up for the open trials on the 20th and 21st of January, 2018.

The trials will take place from 8am to 4pm on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of January, 2018.
