THE Ballarat Netball Association hosted the Victorian Teachers Games netball matches last week.
A total of 79 teams from all over the state competed in women’s elite, intermediate and social, and mixed intermediate and social categories.
A team of Ballarat umpires did a great job over the two-day event, along with canteen supervisor Reet Lenaghan, umpire coordinator and overall scorer Glenda Jones, University of Ballarat students Caitlyn, Emma, Shannon, Jordy and Cassie and games coordinator Anne McCartin.

The first clinic runs from 10am until noon, while the second runs from 1 to 3pm.
