St Agnes Ladies Netball Club was founded in 1974 by friends Di Stephens and Jan Ball. Leaflets were distributed around the village and soon a squad was formed.
The first committee consisted of Di Stephens as Chair, Irene Christoforides as Secretary, Jan Ball as Treasurer and Carol Winter as Social Secretary. The club continued on for probably about 15 years or so, becoming very successful with 3 teams at one stage and the 1st team twice played up into the 1st division!!
The club often used to win the Geoff Burley yearly cup for the ‘Nicest Club’ in which all the teams in the division voted for the most sportsmanlike behaviour! But the highlight of the year was the St Agnes Carnival in which the club always took part, usually with a humorous theme, one year being the 'Olympic Netball Team!’.
The Club was re-vamped in July 2002 by Jan Ball with the help of her daughter Suzii and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Thanks to Jan Ball for suppling info and photos.
