Local netballers celebrated the 2019 NAIDOC message in the midst of friendly competition during this year’s NAIDOC North West Netball.

Competing in mixed competition, teams ranged from local clubs such as Djugun Flames and Broome Girls Academy to open-aged social competition among friends in the round robin tournament on Sunday.

Matches were modified to two-half games instead of the standard four-quarter matches to allow for as many games as possible.
