The competition certainly heated up on the Kingaroy courts at last week’s Monday night grand final games, and not just because these brave women were playing in mid-November temperatures.
Kingaroy’s Monday night netball coordinator Sue Goschnick said the 2020 season had certainly proved to be one of the more challenging competitions to organise.
“Plenty of planning went into getting the season going with Covid restrictions,” she said.
“But everyone was super supportive in following guidelines and it was great that we could play.
“We are looking forward to another big netball season in 2021, with the competition probably starting up again in early February.”
