Eastern Districts Netball Association Inc.


The Eastern Districts Netball Association (EDNA) was formed in 1979.

The Association is administered solely by volunteers and caters for approximately 1600 members per year. Currently our netball community comprises around 180 teams from 30-35 Clubs/Schools taking to the court each week.

The AGM is held on the last Thursday in May each year where all positions become vacant and office bearers are elected. The AGM must be attended by at least one representative from each Club/School. A fine will apply for those that don't adhere.

The Executive Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month.

The Association shall enforce the rules as recognised by the All Australian Netball rule book for all competitions. Netta has some modified rules which are listed in the By-laws. (moderate stepping is allowed, 4 seconds to hold the ball and 4 feet defence) Non-competitive divisions of Primary and Netta also allow the coaches to move up and down the sides of the court to encourage and teach their players.
