NetFest is the mass participation netball event of Netball Australia. It offers players a choice of outdoor or beach netball tournaments. The Gold Coast is the ideal place for netballers and is the favourite holiday destination of netball enthusiasts.

Anyone, male or female over 18 can join Netfest. Newbies or those aspiring to be an Aussie Diamond can opt to play the traditional outdoor netball or the new netball beach format either in a competitive or social format. There is sure to be a division suited for everyone.

Every netball stream requires a round robin tournament played for three sessions. If you plan to enter, choose the competition stream you want to play in.

The netball beach and outdoor competitions will be played in sharp and short formats.
