The SAASTA Aboriginal Netball Academy are heading to the Top End to compete in the Arafura Games in Darwin.
The Games, which is being held for the first time in six years, is an inclusive international sporting event that incorporates both able-bodies and disabled athletes from countries across the Asia-Pacific region spanning 17 sports.
The netball component of the Games will be played in Darwin’s brand-new Territory Netball Centre, which is the same ground that will host the Thunderbirds’ historic Round 7 clash against the Sunshine Coast Lightning.
Ten teams will contest the international netball title, including Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Fiji and Brunei.
The Games present our Academy players with a great opportunity to put their hard work and training to the test against equally-talented opposition.
