The District Netball Live (DNL) tournament, proudly sponsored by ClemenGold, is set to grace Cape Town later this month.
This event, spanning age groups from Under 8 to Under 19, serves as a platform to discover high-performance netball players within the Western Cape and contribute to their development.
The ClemenGold District Netball League is scheduled to take place from February 16 to February 18, 2024.
The competition aims to identify and celebrate talent, bridging the gap between school-level participation, where netball is highly popular, and adulthood, where numbers tend to decline.
The specified dates provide clarity and a sense of anticipation, inviting participants and netball enthusiasts to mark their calendars for this significant event.
