COVID-19 put the start of the netball season on hold, causing fears of a cancellations among each of the individual associations but Netball NSW reacted quickly to salvage the season.

There was uncertainty over representative duties, but associations have worked hard to ensure these competitions creating a platform for junior development are able to go ahead.

The next round of Regional League North Coast competition will take place on July 26.
