SEVERAL teams competing in the private companies’ netball competition are facing penalties for non-payment of registration fees.

In an e-mail circulated to companies participating this season, the PCNC president Margaret Embahe said teams should confirm their payments quickly.
“All registrations should be paid up by now and if teams have not given their deposit slip email them and we will confirm,” Embahe said.
“Penalties will apply accordingly so ensure you advise us soon.
“There are also issues on the eligibility of players and we will be calling on those team representatives to verify,” she said.
Embahe said Able Computing, Airlines PNG, British American Tobacco, bemobile, Coca-Cola, Courts, Curtain Brothers, Deloitte, Ela Motors, EMTV, Gordon International School, Johnstons Pharmacy, Kenmore, Lae Builders Company Ltd, Lamana, NCSL, Niugini Plumbing Services, Paradise Foods, Renos and Western Powers should confirm their payments.
Meanwhile, Brian Bell in the premier division are looking forward to get their New Year campaign off on a high note.
Brian Bell will meet Australian High Commission 1 (AHC) in the main game.
Team leader Caroline Genaia said her side was determined to win the game.
Brian Bell are in sixth place on the premier division ladder following a morale boosting win over Datec (28-26) in game 3 before the festive break.
