Tributes and Profiles


Near the Hoop intends to keep profiles of the former greats of netball in PNG and internationally where they are relevant to the game, on this page.  We believe that by maintaining a respect for those that paved the way for netball in PNG and in recognising the efforts of those in the code today who work to foster growth and prosperity for the sport, a network of supporters will grow, built on an appreciation of the work of others and on an appreciation of an extraordinary game called, netball.

We hope to bring this page to life in the next month or so.
