Local women are invited to take part in two free open netball sessions at The Stadium – Gisborne Secondary College in September.

In partnership with VicHealth and the Gisborne Football Netball Club, Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, is inviting local women to get active by providing sponsorship to the club to enable them to host these open netball sessions.

The Gisborne Football Netball Club will host two sessions at The Stadium – Gisborne Secondary College:

  • Tuesday 11th September 6:30pm to 8pm
  • Tuesday 18th September 6:30pm to 8pm

This is all part of VicHealth’s powerful This Girl Can – Victoria campaign.

The This Girl Can – Victoria campaign is a local version of the world-renowned campaign by Sport England which inspired an incredible 3.9 million English women to get active.

This Girl Can – Victoria aims to build upon this success and empower women across the state to get active and overcome feelings of judgement, fear and embarrassment which are stopping them from getting active.

Local women are encouraged to join the This Girl Can – Victoria movement by heading to and join the community on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and follow #ThisGirlCanVIC.
