NetFest is a mass participation netball event for those aged 18+, held on the Gold Coast from 12-15th October.

Offering a choice of traditional (outdoor) and beach netball tournaments, as well as the introduction of Fast5 Netball tournaments in 2017, NetFest has rapidly established itself as one of the most popular events on the netball calendar. From just 500 participants in its first year, now over 2,500 netballers travel from around Australia and New Zealand.

At each venue, there is a live site offering a range of food and beverage options, live music acts and retail stalls. Family and friends are welcome to support and enjoy the NetFest festivities!

Anyone over 18 can be a part of NetFest; you can be a social or competitive netballer, male or female, a netball newbie or an aspiring Aussie Diamond.
