It was a perfect day for playing netball and Ulladulla & Districts Netball Association (UDNA) players, coaches and umpires were pumped and ready to take on the competition. Our netball community of parents along with their families and visitors were buzzing with lots of encouragement and applause for all our grand final teams.
NetSetGO! Bendigo Bank 9 defeats Giants 8
Giants gave it their all with only five players taking the court while Bendigo Bank had a full team and were off to a good start. The Giants never gave up and were trying their best with lots of short passes and spacing with encouragement. The Giants scored their first goal and both sides erupted with joy. Loose balls were being chased with lots of speed right to the side-lines of the court.

Both teams displayed plenty of control and balance of the ball and themselves, but panic set in on where to pass the ball as there were a few held balls. The score did not depict the play of the game.
This game had everything from passion, skill and lots of improvement from all. The spectators were awesome with lots of encouragement and applause to both teams.
Congratulations to all. The winning team was NetSetGO! is Bendigo Bank. NetSetGO!

Third quarter saw Magpies shoot a few consecutive goals and take the lead. In the final quarter the Magpies took the lead by 8 goals with minor errors changing direction of the play in the game constantly.

Seniors Pink defeated Royal Blue.
2019 Seniors Pink Winners
An energetic and fast paced game took the court, instantly setting the scene for the next sixty minutes ahead. Pink took the lead at the end of the first quarter by two with lots of communication between the players on court for the direction of play to go. Umpires controlled the game with lots of whistle-blowing due to the intensity of the game.
Rebounds and accuracy of shooting became the aim of the game as to who was going to get the ball. Defences on both teams had their work cut out for them, especially rebounding the shots that they forced the shooters to take afar. Spectators offered lots of support and encouragement to both teams. During the third quarter, a total of 22 goals were scored by both teams and the last fifteen minutes of the game saw the players give their all. Royal Blue team never gave up with Pink walking away with the win.
