The Wagga Netball season will commence onSaturday with a full round of matches in both the Junior and Senior Leagues.
The A grade competition is back to five teams competing, with CSU Reddies and Panthers having no A grade teams, as they did last season, but Kooringal makes a comeback to the top grade alongside the four other teams of last year: New Kids Aces, Shooting Stars, Turvey Park and Uranquinty.
In the opening round matches, New Kids Aces will play Shooting Stars in the feature match.
It’s basically a replay of last year’s premiership decider, won by the Aces.
The reigning premiers have retained most of the team which won last season, but may find the opposition a little tougher with the signings of goal shooters, Stacey Curran and Olivia Lang.
A fit Jenea West will also be an asset to the Stars.
The line-ups of Kooringal and Turvey Park are an unknown at the moment, but Turvey is reported to have recruited several new players, whileKooringal will rely on their better A reserve players of last season combining with a couple of formerA graders.
Some 109 teams will contest the Senior League in 12 different grades with play commencing at 11am with the 14 Years division twoand concluding with the A grade competition matches which start at 5pm.
All grades will have a general bye on June 11, July 2, July 9 and July 16, with grand finals on September 17.
