Local Club Prepares for 50 Year Anniversary
Emu Plains Netball Club have completed a successful season in the Penrith District Netball Association, with the local club fielding 21 teams this year.
Playing in the club’s 49th season, the 21 teams consisted of 145 junior and 50 senior players, ranging in age from 6 to 56 years.
“We had many highlights this season. This included seeing our littlies take the court for the first time through to seeing teams that improved and were able to score some goals at the back end of the season” said Elizabeth De Marzi, President of Emu Plains Netball Club.
“Watching the club support for our teams in the final series was great as we saw our 4 teams play well, play hard and play fair in the 2018 Grand Finals. We celebrated our 11C Rascals and 12D Shamrocks finish as Minor Premiers and then go on to win their Grand Finals” she added.
The 2019 season will see Emu Plains Netball Club celebrate 50 years, after beginning in 1969. They are planning a big year with welcoming back many of their founding members, life members and ex-committee to an afternoon of celebration.
The club is arranging a 50 Year jacket that people can purchase, and every member of the club will receive a special momento to mark the anniversary. They will also be introducing a new uniform for the new season to mark the occasion.
“The best part about being the President of this wonderful club is the great players, parents and committee members who support not only their team but the club as a whole” ended Elizabeth.
