2018 Netball Central Zone Tournament Calendar

Please find below and attached in PDF a complete list of netball tournaments on offer throughout the Netball Central Zone for all age level groups and participation in 2018.  Feel free to contact the Host Centre listed or visit their website for further information about entry to any of these events.

* As part of the Year 7&8 review and the introduction of the Year 7&8 Player Development Programme Year 7 tournaments are not endorsed by NNZ or the Zones from 2018

** In 2018 it is hoped a Super Club Tournament will be initiated in which case the Open Grade (19+) events will be phased out.  UPDATE AS AT 15 FEB: Super Club has been confirmed for 15 & 16 September 2018.  See below table for details.  UPDATE AS AT 6 MAR: Marjorie Jenden Tournament relocated from Wairarapa to Hataitai Netball Courts in Wellington due to delays with Colombo Road Courts refurbishment.
