Schools aplenty to hit courts

MORE than 60 teams will contest the Sandhurst Campaspe Goldfields Netball tournament in Bendigo on Thursday.

The tournament featuring almost 500 players will be played at the Golden City netball courts in Marong Road from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

The tournament featuring girls, boys and mixed sections includes teams from as far away as Woodend and Kyabram, plus many Bendigo schools.

The winning school in the girls, boys and mixed sections of the Sandhurst, Campaspe and Goldfields divisions will go on to compete at the regional stage against teams from Sunraysia and Mallee in Swan Hill on August 14.

The winning team from that series will compete in the state finals in Melbourne.
