Netballers to descend on Bundaberg

BUNDABERG is ready to play host to more than 1700 netballers from around the state this weekend when they arrive to compete in the 2010 Feeling Good Carnival.

Motels around the town will be filled to capacity and more than 200 local volunteers have been called upon on to help out at the carnival.

With 147 teams competing, the Feeling Good Carnival will produce an action-packed weekend.

Teams will compete in a range of divisions across six different age groups from under-13s to an open division for senior players.

Bundaberg Netball Association president Karen Holloway said having the Feeling Good Carnival in Bundaberg was fantastic for the local netball community.

“It's the third time we've held it and we hope it's not going to be the last,” she said.

“This is the third time Bundaberg has hosted the Feeling Good Carnival and it's fantastic that Netball Queensland recognises our efforts.

“These sorts of events provide a great financial boost to the association and helps with upgrades to the courts and lighting which is an obvious benefit for local netballers.

The Feeling Good Carnival will be held at Daph Geddes Park, Kendalls Flat, Bundaberg on Saturday and Sunday.
