Service Awards

Fourteen of New Zealand’s most dedicated contributors to the game of Netball have been honoured at the 2021 Netball New Zealand AGM, receiving a Netball New Zealand Service Award. It’s a prestigious award which recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to the game of Netball that has enhanced the game at local level, regionally, nationally and/or internationally.
