National Championships

No netball national champs this year

This is primarily due to the effect of the 2017 National General Elections.

Netball PNG Board Chair, Julienne Leka, explained that the Board had gauged the views of Council members with the majority advising that they would not be able to attend this year’s championships. This was due to the national elections, which had affected local competitions throughout the country.

Leka added the annual general meeting will be held either in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2018.
