A community club since 2004
Menai Indoor Netball has been running competitive and non-competitive competitions in the Menai Indoor Sports Centre for over ten years.
The club is run by an active committee, dedicated to providing an avenue for health, fitness and netball enjoyment for the community.
Menai Indoor Centre officially opened on the 15th August, 2004. When the Menai Indoor Centre was completed and officially opened, the Sutherland Shire Council asked for expressions of interest to run different sports in the Centre.
Christine Newman put forward an expression of interest to run Indoor Netball for the community and it was accepted.
Our first Competition started September, 2004, with Junior and Senior Teams playing onWednesday and Thursday nights.
