Foxtel Expands Netball Support With Coaching Clinics, Club Funding
Foxtel's support for netball "is to stretch from the elite to grassroots after it committed itself to coaching clinics as well as funding for clubs," according to Warren Partland of THE ADVERTISER. Already heavily involved in the sport as the broadcaster of the ANZ Championship and Diamonds' matches on Fox Sports, Foxtel "has lifted its backing after announcing ambitious plans" Wednesday. The Foxtel All-Star program "will offer 500 youngsters the opportunity to attend one-day coaching clinics in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide." The clinics "will be free for youngsters." The Diamonds for Dreams initiative was also launched Wednesday and Foxtel "will contribute funds to support netball clubs through Netball Australia's One Netball program" (THE ADVERTISER, 5/2).
