Netball Cook Islands has acknowledged all teams who have participated in the Mixed Netball Competition.
With the final round featuring the semifinals and final next
Tuesday, Netball Cook Islands secretary Tekura Moekaa said they have seen the
community, including players both new and experienced, support their initiative.
“We started with 10 teams, in the quarter finals we
reduced to eight teams as top eight teams progressed, then in the semis and
finals we had four teams,” Moekaa said.
“It has been a mixed bag, with some new teams to the
Social Netball mix and some teams who have joined all netball initiatives.
Netball Cook Islands is appreciative of the teams’ support.”
Moekaa said the competition is two-fold.
“To continue to rebuild and provide a netball platform
for our community. This has also been a fundraising opportunity for the
National Squad to raise funds for their upcoming international competitions and
an opportunity to get court time to fine tune structures.”
Meanwhile Moekaa said the upcoming Nations Cup in
Singapore will provide a much-needed court and international experience to the
national team leading up to the Pacific Games in November.
Netball Cook Islands and the national squad would like to
thank the following teams – Panthers, Shine on Diamonds, Rehab Rolly Pollies,
Brew Crew, Lipstick Squad, MFAI, 15%, Pinky and Shine on Pearls.
