Hautapu Sports Club’s junior netball teams take to the court for the last time in their 2023 season on Saturday August 26.

It’s Festival Day for the club’s year 3-6 futureFERNS at the Cambridge Netball Centre, where all teams get to show their creative side and bring colour and fun to their game.

They will also demonstrate the skill and learnings they have developed through this season’s futureFERNS programme.

Congratulations to all teams — we know you have all been working hard this season on developing your knowledge and skill in the 7v7 format.

It’s been great to see so many year 7-8 netball teams proudly representing Hautapu Sports this season.

We even have a Battle of the Bridges curtain-raiser this week across these grades.
