Entries close for the Bayleys Beach Netball League today and the Gisborne Netball Centre organisers expect numbers to be on a par with last year.

“It’s heaps of fun and a cool way for winter netballers to get a bit of pre-season bonding in their teams,” centre manager Allisa Hall said.

Gisborne’s beach competition started in 2017, and last year 16 teams took part.

“Teams generally book for two rounds of games each week,” Hall said.

Games will be played on the sand track alongside Churchill Park again.

“Teams play five-a-side games, with a maximum of two males on court for each team at a time,” Hall said.

The league runs for six weeks on Tuesday evenings, and starts next week.

Anyone wanting to enter a team should go to the centre website and follow the link to register for the competition.
