The very exciting Fast Five Netball World Series was played in Melbourne at the weekend, with England coming out winners, and Australia taking third place.

Fast Five Netball will be coming to Forbes Netball Association in February 2018.

The Fast Five competition was discussed at the October monthly meeting, with all present deciding to run the competition at night from mid February and all of March 2018, and finishing by Easter.

A new group of young volunteers must be formed as a committee to run the Fast five competition.

Many younger players have already shown interest in volunteering, but written nominations are now called for, with nominations to close mid November.

All nominations must be emailed to the Secretary Tiff Nicholson email

Netball NSW representatives will be coming to Forbes to meet with the new Forbes Fast Five committee, explaining how it all works, and how to run the competition.

Support will be given in all areas of running the new competition.

This is an exciting new form of netball that Netball NSW is starting to roll out in 2018, and it can only be done in Forbes if there is a separate new committee to do the volunteering.
