Flinders Island Netball Association - 2017 Gunn Bequest Grant 

With the help of community volunteers and mums & dads the Flinders Island Netball Association was able to get up and running again in 2017.  This year they concentrated on junior netball, teaching ball skills and drills, followed by game play.  The children of all different age groups had an excellent season and the improvement from start to finish was enormous.  A big thank you to Flinders Council for their Gunn Bequest Grant with which we were able to purchase new netballs.
