Multicultural Carnival a success

The fifth annual Netball WA Multicultural Carnival was held today at Wembley Sports Park, with participation and attendance reaching record heights in 2019.

A staggering 112 teams from across the state battled it out on the court across the day, with Belridge Secondary College being the most successful school of the day.

The event is catered for those of all skill level and experience, with the carnival boasting 19 divisions.

Netball WA staff were on hand to provide support and guidance where needed, with the purpose of the day not about winning but about having fun, making friends and bridging cultural barriers.

West Coast Fever players also attended the day, encouraging aspiring young netballers.

Netball WA General Manager of Community Netball, Liz Booth, said it was a fantastic day.

“It’s brilliant to see such an increase in participation numbers for an event that brings people with a wide variety of backgrounds together,” Booth said.

“Our purpose is advancing netball, advancing communities and that is at the core of this event, so we’re very proud to run the Multicultural Carnival.”

The Multicultural Carnival is proudly supported by Netball WA’s Principal Partner the Gold Industry Group and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
