The Northern Valleys over-40s netball team emerged as the undisputed champion of the NSW Social Masters competition hosted by Woy Woy Netball Association on the weekend of October 21-22.
The team was formed from club players and other skilled over-40s players to take on teams from across the state in the sweltering heat.
Northern Valleys remained unbeaten all tournament and averaged 25 goals in the shortened format.
The team’s fierce defensive line-up crushed the hopes of the opposing shooters and restricted the opposing teams to single digits.
“I’m very proud of the girls,” team captain Carolyn Ormsby said.
“We fought hard in every game and played some really good netball.
“With most of us being busy working mums, it’s a blessing to take some time out to smile, laugh and play a game that we all love.
“We aim to take on the rest of Australia next year at the 2024 Pan Pacific Masters games.”
The team included Northern Valleys current president, Vicki Stedman, and was supported by founding president, Diane Brown, who established the club 40 years ago.
The team is sponsored by Settlers Tavern, Helloworld Gosford and Complete Playgrounds.
