The Forbes Netball Association will host their annual Regional All Age carnival on Sunday, with numbers showing great support for the day in Forbes.

Over 500 hundred players from the West, Central West and Riverina will play more than 260 games of netball during the action packed day.

Age groups will start at 10 and 11 years, up to opens, with games to start at 8-30 am.

Over 1000 people will be on the grounds at Stephen Field, and everyone is asked to please observe all the COVID Safe plans.

Check in points using a QR code will be available and anyone who is feeling unwell should not attend.

All Forbes players are asked to support the day by making lots of delicious treats to be sold in the canteen.

The Forbes carnival is also a huge fundraising boost for the association, with the members and volunteers working to provide the catering.

Anyone who can help on Sunday is asked to email Secretary Lyn email secretary.forbesnetball@gmail.com or come down. A roster of Forbes teams will also be made up for the day.

Thank you to Forbes Shire Council for preparing the grounds at Stephen Field for the event.

Junior Mixed Netball: The Tri Towns Tournament scheduled to start this week has been cancelled.

A meeting with parents was held, and it was decided to move the Forbes Junior Mixed Netball competition to mid-week.

The Junior mixed competition will be run on a Wednesday night. Games will be played at 5 pm and 6 pm starting in August and the competition will continue through the spring.

Parents have volunteered to help run the competition.

The netball canteen is undertaking upgrades and will be open each Wednesday.

Training for any players who were planning on playing in the Tri Towns Tournament will be held at 10.30 am each Saturday starting this week.

NetSetGo will continue each Saturday during the winter months at 9-30 am for one hour and will be a stand alone program.

Players aged 5 years to 10 years can join in the fun of NetSetGo and learn all the skills.
