Gala Day at Bribie Netball Club

Heather Ball’s Memorial

The Gala Day was dedicated to the memory of Heather Ball who was an active member of Bribie Netball for many years and her passion and vision and dedication to the Club made it what it is today.

Under the guidance of a dedicated group of ladies Bribie Island Netball Club (BINC) was founded in 1979. BINC was the vision of Janelle O’Brien along with Fay Wildman, Cheryl Thornley, Robyn Balmer, Marilyn Kerrison, Rhonda Johnson, Lorraine Latham and Maxine Ryan and bought netball to youngsters in and around Bribie Island. In its inaugural year the Club had around 5 teams in the Redcliffe Competition. The following year in 1980 Caboolture Netball Association (CNA) invited the Club to join their Saturday competition where it has been competing ever since.

When Heather moved to Bribie, she soon became involved with playing and then arranging competitions on the island. This was the beginning of a long association between Heather and BINC. Heather held positions with BINC over several years covering many roles as a parent, player, coach, and active committee member as President, Umpires Convenor, Club delegate, Planning Liaison officer, Bribie Seniors co-ordinator and as a mentor and advocate to many of our players. This culminated in the receiving of her Life Membership.

Thanks to the BINC community for coming out and making this inaugural Gala Day and Memorial for Heather such a fun and special day, with the new plaque dedicated to Heather’s memory taking pride of place in our Club house.
