The brand new courts at the Kojonup Sports Complex will be in action for the first time this Saturday when they host a round of the Katanning Netball Association competition.

Netball was cancelled last week, with a host of junior and senior teams unable to take to the court due to struggling numbers.

The decision was made to cancel round three and get everyone fit and healthy for the Kojonup opening.

There are quite a few mid-week night games ahead, so the committee decided against postponing the games and senior teams instead got one point each and round four will continue as normal.

On Monday the Net Set Netball program started and it was great to see a huge turnout with young children from surrounding towns and each of Katanning’s primary schools.

Children aged pre-primary to Year 3 get split into two age groups and start their netball journey, being taught all the skills and rules.

Net Set is being coordinated by Tania Edwards this season, who has great knowledge of coaching both here in Katanning and elsewhere for development tournaments and association championships.

Some of the mums with their own children participating in the program are helping run it.

Kojonup will be hosting all junior and senior games this Saturday, May 21.

This will be a great day to support Kojonup and their town.
