Message from Netball Queensland

Netball Queensland COVID-19: 

Community Netball

From today, Netball Queensland wishes to advise the following guidelines for all community netball competitions.

In the interests of public health and to stop the spread of COVID-19, it is the recommendation of Netball Queensland that all community netball activity in Queensland be suspended until Monday 20th April.  This includes all playing, training and grading. Netball Queensland understands some Associations and Clubs have already made this decision.

While this is an unfortunate disruption to the commencement of the netball season, Netball Queensland believes a consistent approach is key to protecting our netball community from the very challenging COVID-19 situation.

It is important to note this is an interim suspension of competition and not a cancellation. 

Netball Queensland understands the benefits of our community being active and by making this decision now, believes we can all be back on the court sooner than if we delay.  

Netball Queensland will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis.  We need to keep in mind this is a dynamic situation – information will continue to evolve and change. Netball Queensland is committed to keeping you updated.

A teleconference will be held on Wednesday 8th April to provide an update on all competitions and events, with written advice following.  If the situation changes significantly in the meantime, updates will be provided as required.

While Netball Queensland understands the disruption this decision may cause, the highest priority for Netball Queensland continues to be the health and well-being of its athletes, staff, volunteers, members, fans and the broader community.

Please do not hesitate to contact Netball Queensland via or your Delivery Network Lead if you would like clarification on this guidance.

A message from the Executive Committee

In light of the recent announcement from the Prime Minister, it is with much regret that the ACE Executive Committee announce that the 2020 ACE Club Carnival scheduled for tomorrow will be postponed.  The ACE Executive Committee believe with the recent announcements surrounding the Covid-19 Pandemic, the health and wellbeing of our members will remain paramount.  

The spirit of the ACE Club Carnival has and will always be having fun and getting to know the players and members throughout the club, both young and old, and we hope that a suitable date can be found in the near future for when we can move this event to.  

We would like to thank all those that have put in time and effort to organise this event, including managers, coaches, coaching convenors and Executive Members.

PRNA AGM & Delegates' Meeting

Letter forwarded to PRNA Committee for clarification on Club Grading here

Result of clarification here (when available)

Critical Changes to PRNA Club Grading Policy in 2020 - separate to ACE Grading in February

Last week PRNA forwarded the Club Grading Policy Guide for the 2020 season.  Please find below club/grading information copied directly from the proposed policy.  In 2019 PRNA proposed for the 2020 season, that grading be split into two separate groups, SC1 and SC2 and.  SC1 will encompass U11 to U14.  SC2 will encompass Modified, Inters and Opens.  Each club will have one representative at either the SC1 or SC2 grading.


                “SC1 - Juniors will participate in a Junior carnival prior to round 1. The group will spend time at lunch and at the end of carnival to review move and then finalise teams for the Junior divisions. Clubs will be notified, any feedback will be provided and round 1 will start with no further moves for these divisions. 

            SC2- Mody, Inter and Divs will have a normal grading meeting prior to round 1 with a re- grade after round 5.  This group will follow the current PRNA policy in relation to grading.

                Note: Trial junior carnival will be reviewed by delegates in 2020.”

In summary, ACE members need to be aware that essentially the club/team grading will not change for Modified, Inters or Opens (SC2), ie nomination of teams into divisions prior to week 1 fixtures and re-grading after round 5.

SC1 teams, U11 to U14 will attend a COMPULSORY grading carnival on Saturday 28 March 2020.  Details will be available when ACE is advised of the arrangements.  This date is in the ACE Calendar on the website.

ACE Rebound Wall Update


ACE Netball Club want a rebound wall to help develop our players.

We have been trying for several years to get a wall.  This year we have been successful in obtaining a grant from the Moreton Bay Regional Council.  This grant will cover 75% of the cost of the wall.

We have been busy fundraising for the other 25% of funds needed to get the wall built.

The wall is almost finished.  We are just waiting on final inspections and then it should be ready to use.
