Last Wednesday marked an important milestone for the Port Hedland Netball Association with demolition of the clubhouse at the Faye Gladstone Netball Courts starting and senior and junior players showcasing their skills at the first round of trials for the North West Championships.

Port Hedland Netball Association president Tracey Swami said although the club could not wait for the arrival for their new clubhouse, it was a sentimental moment for members.

“This has been a plan that has been four or five years in the making,” she said.

“It’s an end of an era. Some of us have been here for nine or 10 years and this has been our second home. Watching it go down was definitely mixed feelings but we’re so excited with what we’re going to get.
