Presidents Message

As a netball community, Covid-19 has given us all a new sense of appreciation and gratefulness.  The challenges and obstacles we’ve faced the past 2-years have been extreme and taught us the importance of unity and resilience.  I am extremely proud of the collective effort of our netball community, clubs, volunteers and committee.  We have adapted to the many changes to our competition dates throughout the year, adhered to the restrictions and guidelines placed on us by the QLD Government as a result of Covid-19, successfully completed the winter and summer competitions, ran 3 fantastic carnivals and hosted one Netball QLD state event @ HDNA.  A massive year for everyone and I would also like to thank our wonderful vendors and sponsors for their ongoing support of the association.  The future of HDNA is bright – we have real strengths, great people, strong values and a proud history.  

On behalf of the Executive Committee, we wish you and your family a beautiful Christmas and the happiest New Year.  We look forward to seeing you all again for another fantastic season of netball in 2022.
