President's Words

SHERRYN HANCOCK

Welcome to our first official newsletter of Hong Kong Netball. This has been a fantastic year for Hong Kong Netball, the below are just the tips of the iceberg!

Hong Kong Tri-Nations – March 2017 – Hong Kong (internationally ranked 25) played Zimbabwe (17) & Malaysia (19). Hong Kong defeated Malaysia to finish 2nd in the Tournament. A fantastic result for Hong Kong Opens Team! Also, a sincere gratitude to Mel Potgieter who helped create care packages and raised fund by donations and lucky draw. A total of $ 19,725 was raised solely because of Mel's kind efforts and the generosity of the netball community. Thank you to all of you! 

Joint Dynamics HK Netball League Best & Fairest – Congratulations to the winner - Cheryl Purcell from HKFC Cyclones, Div 5. The Prize was 10 x 1-1 training sessions & 5 x Sports Massage sessions at Joint Dynamics.

Hong Kong Netball could not function without the volunteers including coaches, umpires, players and club committees. I personally would like to thank the HKNA Committee that has worked tirelessly throughout the year. I specifically would like to thank our Excom, Danielle Taylor – VP Coaching & Development, Emma Gregory – VP League & Umpiring, Christina Yue – Honorary Treasurer (also Grassroots Programme Convenor) & Katherine Ip – Secretary.

A huge congratulation to Ms Veronica Arnold who was re-elected as President of the Asian Netball Federation Meeting held in Jeon-ju Korea in June 2017. This is a great honour for Veronica & Hong Kong.

HKNA could not have achieved the performance from the last year without the support of our major sponsors Joint Dynamics for sponsoring the National Open Team & our Premier League, and Champion System for outfitting our National Open & Youth Teams.

Finally, I wish you all a safe summer holiday and look forward seeing you next season at Hong Kong Netball!

In Hong Kong, there are approximately 1,200 people playing the game of netball at various levels.  The Hong Kong Netball League has 6 divisions and runs from October to April every year.  Inter-school competitions and Junior Netball League are held every year in which local, ESF, international schools will participate.  Some players will choose to play for one of the netball clubs in HK.  There are also the Netball Development Tournament and Festival of Sports Netball Tournament in which a lot of local Chinese Netballers will make their debut appearance.

The Hong Kong Netball Association (HKNA) is keen to promote the sport and encourage more local people to experience this fast and exciting game.  Currently the HKNA is running the "Schools Netball Promotion Programme" which focuses on promotion at Secondary Schools.  Netball is also one of the Easy Sport under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department's "Schools Sports Programme".
