Netball in Paradise wrapped up on Thursday this week with the last of the games played at the Ngatangiia Matavera netball courts in the morning.

In the evening the players swapped their bibs for evening dresses to celebrate their grand finale function at the Islander Hotel.

The high calibre players from New Zealand and Australia have really shone a light on the home-grown top talent who have been outstanding on court, and who have relished the opportunity to play some top netball.

Netball in Paradise is super proud of the local players for stepping up their game while having great fun at the same time, and for showing great sportsmanship and wonderful Cook Islands hospitality.

The final results for the Netball in Paradise tournament are: 13U 1st Aro – Papa; 2nd Rarotonga, 3rd Fruit Salad. Social women 1st Just Kruizin; 2nd Smash; 3rd Porirua RSA Rebels. Open Mixed 1st Smash; 2nd Charlie’s Angels; 3rd Ahikaa.
