Most Important Tournament in Asia

The Asian Netball Championships is the premier netball championships in Asia. The 2014 edition is set to be the most competitive yet as it is also the qualifiers for the 2015 Netball World Cup.

Singapore won its first-ever Gold in 2005, thanks in part to excellent spectator support. This year’s tournament will also be a great platform to build interest and engagement in the lead-up to the SEA Games in 2015.

Involving the Community

Netball is still the sport with the highest female participation in Singapore, with over 300 schools and 60 clubs involved in the sport. The Mission Foods Asian Netball Championships also provides an opportunity for Netball Singapore to further engage schools and the community.
