Boys Play Netball Too

And you can catch them – and the women – in action in Paarl at the Indoor Netball World Cup (for free)

Why not throw another world cup tournament into an already exciting sporting year? Every two years the Indoor Netball World Cup gets rotated between the participating nations (Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa) and this year it’s our turn. It also happens to be happening right here on our doorstep, in Paarl, from 4 to 10 August 2019.

INDOOR VS OUTDOOR NETBALL
The rules are very similar, but the main difference is that due to the high netting around the court, the ball remains “in” and is always live. There are fewer stops, so the action flows. The sport is governed by the World Indoor Netball Federation (WINA), of which South Africa is a member. With only four member countries (Australia, New Zealand, England, SA), there’s no qualifying criteria.

SUPPORT YOUR TEAM
The SA Ladies, Men’s, Mixed and Under 21 Ladies will be playing. There are two tournaments in one; the first three days features the 6aSide competition and the last three days is the 7aSide competition. Australia dominates the overall wins in 7aSide and New Zealand the 6aSide. 

ENTER THE ARENA: WHAT TO EXPECT
The event takes place at the Bergriver Business Park in Paarl. It’s a big warehouse-style building, with three full-size action sports courts and a spectator area with a fully licensed bar and viewing area upstairs overlooking the courts. On the ground level are kiosks for refreshments and snacks as well as an outdoor food court. You can get coffee, muffins, smoothies, wraps, toasted sandwiches, burgers, chips, corn dogs, chicken pops, chicken strips and pancakes. 

Children are welcome as spectators and local charity, Mbekweni Youth Centre, will be treating about 20 children a day to a fun day of watching the action.

ATTENDING AS A SPECTATOR AT THE INDOOR NETBALL WORLD CUP
There is no cost to spectators for coming to watch and there is plenty of secure parking at the centre complex at no charge. Seating will be limited and based on a first-come-first-served basis. For more information, contact the Paarl Action Sports Arena on +27(0)21 868 0268.
