With the Ballarat and Central Highlands netball leagues abandoning the 2020 campaign, The Athlete's Foot Cup is shaping up as an attractive destination for high-end talent.
The Ballarat Netball Association will reach out to clubs in the coming weeks, in hopes of boosting the number of teams in its premier competition.
With limited chances to play in 2020, BNA president Jo Dash said clubs might take extra notice of the invitation.
"Every year we contact all the clubs in the region, offering all the chance to enter," she said.
"We will be doing it again this year to say if you really want to play netball, here is the perfect opportunity."
The Athlete's Foot Cup is the highest senior club competition in the region.
Four teams competed for the ultimate prize 2019, however Dash said she hoped to see that number increase to six or eight for the upcoming season.
She said many of the strongest football netball clubs featured players who already play in the league, but she would love to see more.
"The standard of The Athlete's Foot Cup is higher than anything else in the region, and to take that challenge is what we want people to do," she said.
"To have new entries and clubs around the region and beyond would be fantastic."
A start date is yet to be set for The Athlete's Foot Cup, however Dash said the competition would most definitely go ahead.

She said the area boasted plenty of talent and players had nothing to lose by having a go.
"Indoor netball at the top level in the region is something, and the players who play in it are always amazed by the standard," she said.
"There is a talent identification aspect to it and good young players can be noticed and given opportunities to involve themselves in other development programs and try out for state teams."
