NCD netball comp begins


THE Private Companies Netball Competition (PCNC) tipped off its preseason at the Rita Flynn Indoor Complex in Port Moresby on Sunday.
PCNC president Kori Toua Navuru said the season would start next weekend.
The preseason had started late because of Apec and the festive period.
Navuru advised all club presidents and secretaries to attend the annual general meeting at 10.30am at the Holiday Inn on Saturday.
“This is an important meeting that delegates should attend to pass resolutions on the completion of the competition and present their reports for last season,” Navuru said.
“Last season, we had 97 teams.
“This year, the inclusion of BNBM, BPNG, EGBTI and Garamut Enterprise brings the number of teams to 101.
“This is one of the biggest offseason netball competition which attracts corporate companies in Port Moresby and Central to competes.”
She said the association was fortunate to have Port Moresby Netball Association’s (POMNA) support by allowing qualified umpires to officiate the matches.
Navuru said the inclusion of POMNA players in the preseason was a positive step in improving the standard of the sport.
