The International Netball Festival Inc (INF Inc) has confirmed that the four-day netball festival will be held at the Lautoka Multi-Purpose Courts on December 7.

INF Inc president Jane Rushton said the annual netball festival attracts players from around the world.

“This year we’ll welcome 43 teams from Australia, New Zealand and a number of Fijian teams,” she said.

Rushton founded the festival in 2011 in Gold Coast, Australia where the event is held each year in April.

The INF held its inaugural netball festival in Fiji in December 2015 and year upon year, the festival grew with interest and involvement by local teams as well as overseas teams.

“One of the main goals of INF Inc is to support the local Fijian netball communities by encouraging netballers from around the world to come together and play at the INF,” she said.

Players will play in four divisions- Under-13, U15, U18 and Opens. The festival includes umpires, trophies, participation medals, a fun meet and greet event as well as a gala dinner.

Some Australian teams have kindly offered to sponsor Fijian netball teams that require assistance. – Edited by Osea Bola
