Hunter Netball - Metro League

 

 

 

Metro League is one of the elite netball competitions in New South Wales, offering weekly competition for the state’s most talented netballers, coaches, umpires and administrators. Hunter Netball will have a minimum of two teams in the 2020 Metro League and divisions will be finalised in early 2020.

Hunter United have previously been a successful brand in the Metro League, leveraging opportunity for regional athletes to compete against their metropolitan counterparts. This partnership with the Hunter Academy of Sport will provide Hunter Netball with credibility as they continue to create a strong team and open the pathway for the next Premier League bid.
