Netball WA seeking new WANL licences

Netball WA is pleased to announce that Expressions of Interests for West Australian Netball League (WANL) licences for 2019 – 2021 are now open.

Run by Netball WA, WANL is the State’s premier netball competition, and in 2019, will undergo its most significant changes in its 30-year history, with the licencing of eight new clubs selected by Netball WA to participate in a restructured female competition, while the addition of a Men’s Open Division in 2018 will cement the League’s position as the pre-eminent netball competition in WA.

The governing body for the State’s largest female participation sport has extended invitations to a number of sporting clubs across a range of codes, with Netball WA Chief Executive Officer Simon Taylor also calling on the West Australian corporate community to support the competition.

“WANL brings together the State’s best netballers, and this reformed League with new teams will continue to showcase the abundance of netball talent we have within WA,” Taylor said.

“It’s certainly an exciting time for the sport, and I strongly urge any clubs, codes or organisations considering applying to do so.”

“WANL has long enjoyed a successful and strong relationship with the corporate community of WA, one that has seen clubs and the League itself, forge lasting partnerships with organisations from across a range of industries.”

The announcement comes off the back of an historic weekend for netball in Western Australia, with the Delegates from the 11 Regions voting in favour of adopting the new Netball WA Constitution at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday, March 24.

Interested parties must confirm their intent to submit an EOI by completing the Expression of Interest Part A Form in the Expression of Interest Licence Application document by Friday, 27 April 2018 here.

Netball WA will then contact organisations to complete the full application, with Clubs to be advised of the outcome in early August.

The full EOI Information Pack can be found here.
