COVID-19 announcement from DNA

Important information regarding Sitzler Netball Centre and CDU Stadium.

Following the issuing of the CHO Directions #8 and #9 on Tuesday 11 January 2022 the position of the facility in regard to the NT Government Vaccine Pass system is now quite clear.

The entire facility is a Licensed Hospitality Venue and thus will be required to abide by the Vaccine Pass rules for persons over 16 years of age.

Effectively, all attendees will be required to be double vaccinated unless able to present a formal exemption and the necessary check-in protocols will be established for compliance.

This approach takes effect immediately. DNA look forward to everyone’s co-operation in ensuring a smooth approach to implementation of this requirement.

For Norther Districts, this means that all players, coaches, umpires, committee members and supporters 16 years and older will need to be double vaccinated to attend the Netball Centre in Marrara, and show evidemce of this upon entry. This applies to all attendance, including training, games and carnivals.

The situation will be closely monitored for any changes to the CHO Directions but, for the time being, this has to be the requirement to abide by.

For further information and queries please email

Farewell and thank you – Sue Kendrick

After 20(!) years of being at the helm of the Northern Districts Eagles Netball Club, Sue Kendrick has recently stepped down as president.

We cannot thank her enough for everything she has given to the NDE family and the way she has lead this club.

Sue always stayed true to the primary purpose of our netball club, which is to provide an atmosphere of fun, teamwork, sportsmanship and development, be part of a team regardless of standard or success and to promote participation and good health of the members and their families (and yes – that bit came straight from our constitution).

She has been instrumental in the development and growth of many of NDE’s juniors from Nettas to seniors, and has done so in a way that brought not just players and teams together, but created a whole NDE family ❤️💛💙.

We will miss her enormously and wish her all the very best in her travels and subsequent move to Victoria.

Thank you Sue, for giving our club so much of your passion, dedication, knowledge, leadership and time. You have left us with some big shoes to fill, but also with a club we are proud of and are looking forward to continuing in the same spirit.

We are holding a Special General Meeting on Sunday 4 December 2022, to appoint a new president and additional committe members – details to follow.
