Netball WA’s Fuel to Go and Play Association Championships saw more than 13 000 players from 267 teams in 41 Associations across 38 divisions shine gold as they took to the court this year.
Whether it was a heart of gold hat won at our shooting comp, gold glitter braids with face paint or golden smiles snapped in front of our Instagram wall, it was all in demand with a comfy couch in the Gold Lounge.
As Principal Partner of Netball WA, the Gold Industry Group were proud to support the diverse and inclusive Fuel to Go and Play Association Championships, which also featured 15 teams from Singapore and participants from Netball WA’s No Limits Division, a wonderful competition for athletes with an intellectual disability, as well as the boy’s divisions.
Netball WA CEO Simon Taylor said it was fantastic to see the new partnership come to life and the Gold Lounge activation was most popular.
“The Gold Lounge was certainly a highlight of the weekend and expanded on the events engagement with the participants,” he said.
“The investment by the Gold Industry Group in a range of new initiatives across the event added significant value and helped create one of the most successful and enjoyable Association Championships in recent years.”
The West Coast Fever players also got in on the action, signing autographs in the Gold Lounge and sporting their heart of gold hats.
All our gold activations were certainly a hit, with the constant lines keeping member volunteers busy, and providing an invaluable opportunity for the gold industry to connect with the netball community.
Congratulations to our Instagram winning team, thanks to the creative team shot by Matilda, who will be court side at the West Coast Fever match this weekend!
