Building a netball community is the main goal for CSU Bathurst Netball as they look to the start of their 2022 season. Whilst the official playing season doesn’t begin until Saturday the 30th of April, Club President Rhiannon Moore is looking forward to the start of their ‘social season’ to strengthen the university’s netball community.

“Our big goal for the season is to get a social following for the club because we have been lacking it the last couple of years”, said Moore.

With the 2021 season cut short due to covid, the girls were unable to play in their competition finals. Now back and better than ever, CSU Bathurst Netball have set themselves the goal of playing finals this year. The key to a finals appearance for the A-grade side may come in the form of external coach – Amber Kelly.

“Amber will hopefully give us an advantage as we will have someone watching the game from the sideline, being able to watch the game as a whole and not getting caught up as a player and coach at the same time’’ said Moore.

Coming off a close loss almost 2 months ago, the A-grade side are out for revenge as they prepare to play one more trial game before their season starts. The re-match is set to take place on Tuesday the 27th of April on the netball courts behind the CSU gym.

If you’re interested in getting involved with the CSU netty club, there are plenty of ways to do so. The club offers social memberships for $50 that includes a club polo, club sponsorship deals and entry to all club events. 

You can go watch the games every Saturday at the Bathurst Netball Courts (near the hospital) from 12-4pm or if you’re keen on playing the girls are still looking for some additions to their B2 and C grade sides which are a more social level of competition.
