The Sports Precinct transformed into a high-performance Netball Hub earlier this term, as the College welcomed the Australian Netball Team, in preparation for their must win final clash of the Constellation Cup Series against the Silver Ferns. The Diamonds took to the courts on Friday and Saturday in front of our College’s finest netball enthusiasts, who embraced the rare opportunity to see their idols up close.

The intensity and attention to detail put into their work was an eye-opening experience that captured the attention of our students. 

For Bayley d’Hotman De Villiers it provided an insight into the calibre of training required to perform at the highest level, "It was a very inspiring and motivating experience to see firsthand the intensity and precision the Diamonds train at."

The Diamonds certainly delivered, appearing to leave no stone unturned as they fine-tuned their preparation and welcomed the opportunity afterwards to interact with our students.

“Seeing how friendly they were with all of us students and aspiring netballers, after the training. It really does show that it is possible to make it to the top," said Bayley.

The Diamonds went on to defeat the Silver Ferns 57 to 53 to retain the Constellation Cup for 2022.
