An electrifying finish to the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball series

September 2019

On Sunday 15 September, the NSW Swifts were too good for the Sunshine Coast Lightning, winning the series with 64 goals to 47 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Among the captivated crowd was our lucky competition winner, Belinda Wardle. Belinda had never attended a super Netball game before, so of course she was thrilled to be there.

Belinda’s Grand Final prize included 4 tickets, a behind the scenes tour and an exclusive fan photo opportunity under the winners’ arch on court. Belinda rubbed shoulders with various netball players backstage and spent time on the sidelines to watch them warm up on court.

For most people, narrowing down who to choose for a competition like this would be tricky. For Belinda she knew straightaway – she was taking her three sisters. It turns out that all the Wardle girls were netball players at school. “They were the obvious choice for me,” she says. “Sisters stick together.”

Belinda’s love for netball came to fruition when she was young. “I played Wing Defence for my team at school. I loved the position,” she says.

Belinda’s favourite netball player is former captain of the Australian national team, Laura Geitz. While unfortunately she didn’t get to see Geitz in action on Sunday, she was happy to support her team, the Sunshine Coast Lightning. “Netball is such a fast-paced, action-packed sport. It was a great game to watch, regardless of the outcome.”

This will be the first of many netball competitions we’re running, so make sure you’re signed up to our exclusive netball newsletter. Because as the NSW Swifts know all too well, you gotta be in it to win it!
