TENNANT Creek will play host to the State
Netball Championships next term from 26-28
The event is part of the annual School Sport NT pro-
gram in which students from around the Territory can
represent their region in a range of sporting competi-
tions and development opportunities.
Teams from Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine, Alice
Springs and Arnhem will be competing at the Champi-
onships which will be held at the Sport and Recreation
Girls from around Tennant have already started train-
ing in preparation for the event thanks to the support
of Ellie Watkins from Tennant Creek Primary School.
A squad of 12 netballers (who are 12 years or under)
will be selected to represent the Barkly region in the
coming weeks, so it is important that any interested
girls are attending training sessions.
Training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday
afternoons at 2:45pm at Tennant Creek Primary School.
The squad will also be supported by Natasha Civita-
rese who worked with the Barkly netball squad last year,
and Sean Clancy who has recently moved to Tennant
Creek as the regional School Sport Coordinator.
If you are interested in supporting the Barkly Netball
Squad with training sessions, acting as an umpire or
providing billet accommodation for travelling students

Primary School or Sean through the Barkly Education
Office at the Tennant Creek Training Centre.

Basketball grand plan
LITTLE Athletics in Tennant Creek
is in line to receive a funding boost,
compliments of Katerina’s Café.
Nick and Katerina Roditis, are running two
fundraising breakfast buffets over the next
two weekends to help junior athletes in town
fulfil their potential.
“Our son Vasileios goes to the Primary
School now and our youngest boy, Panagi-
otis, will soon be of school age so when we
were approached by the Athletics team we
did not hesitate to get involved,” Nick said.
Sunday morning breakfast is a great op-
portunity to get the whole family out of the
house, feed and water the mob and save a
heap of cooking, not to mention the dishes.
An adult breakfast is only $25 with $6
of that going to the cause and kids $13, $3
of which will go towards the youngsters
athletic pursuits. Little Athletics has been
an enormous success in Tennant with great
community support and an impressive track
record from the sports stars themselves.
So if you have a great Friday and Saturday
and need a relaxing family recovery event,
get on down to Katerina’s Cafe this Sunday,
06 April from 8am to 12noon, enjoy a fan-
tastic breakfast and have the satisfaction of
knowing you will be supporting the healthy
lifestyle kids in town need to get ahead.
And if you enjoy yourselves and think, ‘we
should do this again sometime’; you can.
Katerina’s Little Athletics Fundraising
Breakfast Buffet will be available on Sunday
13 April as well.
WHEN Anyinginyi Sport and
Recreation Manager, Marcus Ma-
her, introduced the basketball
competition to the popular and
successful Friday Night Games
at the Purkiss Reserve Sport and
Rec complex, he had a grand
plan in mind.
“The Friday Games Project is a
Federally-funded event which we have
been administering here since last year,”
“It became clear to me that a structured
sporting competition was what was need
to focus the interest of the age group (14
to 26) we had to cater for and basketball
was the standout choice.
“On Friday 21 March we had around
50 to 60 youth show up to register six
male and three female teams of between
seven and nine players per team; five on
the court at any one time and three or
four on the bench.
“During the course of the second eve-
ning on 28 March, round-robin matches
were played with five minute halves
and the teams were rotated so that each
team got to play at least five games in
Because of the imminent holiday pe-
riod coming up on Easter weekend and
the Anzac weekend, the formal compe-
tition has been delayed until things are
back to normal.
There are a number of upgrades which
will occur before the real competition
starts such as new nets and rings for the
courts and uniforms will be purchased
for teams once the numbers are settled
and people show commitment to the
Basketballers even get fed a delicious
meal prepared by the Healthy Lifestyle
Team, Jemma Patterson and Kym
Once the competition is under way,
player teams will be rostered on to help
with meal preparation and distribution.
