The first of three trial games was held last Saturday, with the Lismore and District Netball Association competition proper scheduled to start on April 28.

Two new clubs, Nimbin Headers and Pacific Hotel, will compete this year, taking to 105 the total number of teams in this years line-up. Of these, 54 are in the seniors, 20 intermediates, 19 juniors and 12 in the nettas (girls aged six to nine).

This will be a big year for the association, with a special diamond jubilee celebration looking like a party to remember.

Association president Lynne Sims said a major dinner and reunion would be held, with final details still to be completed.

Another highlight will be the Lismore Masters Games, with up to 40 teams from the NSW north coast and south-east Queensland set to take part from September 21-23.

Lismore representative teams also have been finalised, with Lismore to host a junior representative carnival on June 3.
