Case study: Collaboration scores for Tully netballers
A collaboration between the Tully Netball Association and Tully State High School means almost 200 junior and senior local netballers will be shooting goals for many years to come.
Accessing the high school’s more modern playing facilities has given Tully Netball greater flexibility in its scheduling and improved safety for its participants.
This unique on-and-off-court relationship has already secured lights for the high school’s existing outdoor courts and plans are underway to invest in additional infrastructure that meets the community’s needs. This includes resurfacing existing outdoor courts, seating, covers and ventilation, additional courts and a canteen.
These proposals align with Netball Queensland’s Strategic Plan and could significantly improve access to netballing opportunities for Cassowary Coast residents.
