Our Golden Oldies Netball Festivals have been designed to give over 35’s the opportunity to play Netball in various holiday destinations around the world. Our Festivals ‘Let the love of Netball take you places’ and give you the opportunity to form new friendships with fellow Netballers’ across the globe.
No matter where you are from, or what your ability is, the competition is open to players aged 35+. Friends, family and supporters are always encouraged to attend the week-long Festival, where the social functions are just as important as the games. While some players may enter ‘competitively’ we also have ‘social’ categories so the teams you play against will be of similar ability. Golden Oldies Festivals are all about fun and friendship, therefore we don’t publish the scores and there is no overall winner.
Held bi-annually, our previous Golden Oldies Netball Festivals have been held in Adelaide, Auckland, Brisbane, Christchurch, Cook Islands, Fiji, Gold Coast, Singapore, Vancouver, Perth, Queenstown, San Diego and Hobart. In April 2018 we will be bringing the Festival to Christchurch, New Zealand as part of the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018
The 2018 Golden Oldies World Netball Festival will continue the philosophy of ‘Fun, Friendship and Fraternity’ which is a principal reason for the success of this sporting movement. It is another opportunity to travel to a different and exciting tourism, sporting and lifestyle destination for a week of sport with like-minded enthusiasts.
Golden Oldies has changed many people’s lives and has resulted in many travelling away from home for the first time and forming life long friendships.
