The current Cairns Netball Association started up in 1980 at the Balaclava School, eventually moving to Martyn Street on four grass courts and then to six bitumen courts. In the beginning we had 14 Senior Teams then moved to include the Junior players in 1983, with 10 Teams. Current Serving Life Members, Carol Duncan, Heather McLaren, Jill Fowler and Fran Kilfoy were amongst the original “players” and part of the organising Committee.
Cairns Netball Association has a strong presence in the Cairns Area, being the most participated sport by females. We are grateful to the many people in different sections of our Community plus our Volunteers, who over the years who have helped us to be the force we are today.
