In this National Volunteer's Week we would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful volunteers who helped make our fund-raising BBQ a success. Thank you to everyone who helped out during the day, from people helping to set up, doing the cooking and serving; donations to our cake stall and finally the clean up. Without your dedicated support and hard work such events would not succeed...THANK YOU

Don Spillane

It is with profound sadness that Ashbury Netball Club advises of the passing of Mr Don Spillane after a short illness.

Don was a long time supporter of St Francis Xavier's and Ashbury Netball Clubs, for both Betty and his daughters, Donna, Vicki, Frances and Peta and his grand-daughters. Don was well-known in netball circles. He attended games and provided behind-the-scene support, picking up and delivering equipment, pumping up netballs, sweeping the training courts and in his spare time, enjoyed the races and football. He will be sorely missed by all.

Our deepest condolences are extended to Donna, Vicki, Frances, Peta and their families on the loss of their beloved Dad.

May he rest in peace.

Shoosh for Kids

The "Shoosh for Kids" campaign is run by the NSW Government Office of Sport during the month of May and the message is fully supported by Netball NSW and Ashbury Netball Club which encourages positive spectator behaviour at our games and to promote the very simple message – if you don’t have anything nice to say, SHOOSH for kids.

Keep it positive. Keep it fun. Keep them coming back.


Thank You
