Playing it pink

The courts were transformed into a sea of pink.

Lilydale and Yarra Valley Netball Association turned local courts into a sea of pink on Saturday 8 May.

As part of the clubs annual Pinks and Pinks Day, players of all ages donned their best pink attire to raise funds for breast cancer.

Breast cancer merchandise and raffles were on sale throughout the games, with every gold coin donated for entry also going to the cause.

Clubs at Mt Evelyn swapped out the usual navy blue and green uniform for pink skirts, tutus and tops, while some players showed off their pink socks and hair accessories to match.

Club president Sarah Kleverkamp said it “was great to see so many people back at the complex together, especially now that we can have more than one spectator per player and official”.

“We saw grandparents and other family members that have previously not been able to attend for so long,” she said.
