History Of the Association

History of Townsville City Netball Association 

Townsville City Netball Association was estabished in 1981 as a breakaway competition from the Corcoran Park Netball Association. The association began with a small number of teams competing at the Fit for Life Centre on Charters Towers Rd in Hermit Park. They soon outgrew this facility and expanded to Keyatta Park in West End, 1986. This facility had four bitumen courts and a donga. Unfortunately in 1988, this land was resumed to develop the lakes, one of which is named Keyatta Park. As a result the Association moved to the Murray Sporting Complex that then consisted of a lot of scrub and chonky apple trees.

Council initially provided 6 bitumen courts with lighting. Over the past 20 years, the association has worked hard to develop the facilities that now include 4 grass courts, 22 hard courts, lighting for all hard courts, extensive shade and seating, canteen, clubhouse, admistration room, amenties block, BBQ area, carpark and a perimeter fence. The Association has grown exponentially and now manages a Premier League, senior competition and junior competition. There are 8 Premier League teams, 40 Senior Teams and 135 Junior teams, equating to over 2000 active members.

The Association also hosts a range of regional and state carnivals and championships that incorporate a huge number of participants across a weekend of competition.
