Elite netball lands in the Latrobe Valley

The Collingwood Magpies are returning to the Latrobe Valley this month for a pre-season tournament, thanks to a partnership with the Latrobe Valley Authority which is bringing major sports events to the region as part of the Latrobe Valley Sports and Community Initiative.

The Collingwood Magpies, Adelaide Thunderbirds and Queensland Firebirds will compete in a three-match pre-season tournament at the Gippsland Regional Indoor Sports Stadium ahead of the Suncorp Super Netball National League commencing in early May.

Along with playing three high intensity, high skill and high energy matches, Collingwood athletes and coaches will engage with the local netball community to provide clinics and skills sessions.

The event is a major coup for the Gippsland region, with players, coaches and support staff staying in the region for the duration of the tournament.

The recently redeveloped Gippsland Regional Indoor Sports Stadium is helping to attract elite sports events and associated community activities to the region.

Tickets for the pre-season tournament are on sale from today via Eventbrite.
