VNA was first formed in November of 1986 in Port Vila.
At the interdistict Games in Tanna a few months before the formation, all the Local Associations already in existence had a big meeting and decided to form the Vanuatu Netball Association. A small interim committee headed by Fanaura Kingstone were appointed to work at a draft constitution and other matters. Ms Kingstone was working for the U Escap office at the time.
The constitution went through a couple of drafts and the final endoresement and launching was done in November. Following the adoption, the first office bearers were chosen for 2 years:
Merilyn Tahi - President
Fanaura Kingstone - First Vice President
Hellen Aru - Second Vice President
Loreen Ngwele - Secretary
Janet Vagaha - assistant Secretary
Eileen Nganga- Treasurer
Noeline Lulu - Vice Treasurer
These women were the first executive members of Vanuatu Netball Association.
