Pittsworth Wildcats Award Presentations
With grand finals played on Saturday, Wildcats held their presentation at Club Pittsworth on Sunday.
We have had a great season on the courts and many new learning experiences off court, a new committee, a new online netball registration platform along with live scoring.
This season we had a total of 78 players, with nine teams playing from under 10s through to open divisions.
We also had 12 players play representative netball.
All players received medallions with coaches, managers and umpires also being recognised for their efforts throughout the season.
The U10 divisions are a non-competitive competition while the other seven teams are graded around age groups and abilities.
We had six teams all finish in the top four of their divisions going into the finals series, with two teams making it through to the grand final, 12B Tigers and 13A Cheetahs both finishing runners up for the season.
