A history of local netball


SHEPPARTON has a long-standing love of netball and as the 2019 season commences, we have decided to look back over the sport’s lengthy history.

Netball has a mysterious local history that can be traced back to around 1934 when ladies’ basketball commenced in Shepparton. Over the years, there have been many changes to the sport that has only increased in popularity, with local history of the sport sometimes quite difficult to track down.

With help from Lost Shepparton and Shepparton Heritage Centre, we are excited to be presenting images from Shepparton’s vast netball history. For more great photos of Shepparton’s past, visit Lost Shepparton or Facebook.
