Purdie puts ball skills to the test with netball title

He’s the first to admit his ball skills need work, but that hasn’t stopped Ninderry MP Dan Purdie proudly accepting the role of Patron of Sunshine Coast Netball Association.

Earlier this month Dan was officially announced as a patron for the Association, which represents more than 12 clubs and 2000+ players across the Coast.

“It’s a real honour to be asked to be patron of the Sunshine Coast Netball Association, who are doing so much to encourage participation in one of our country’s most popular sports,” Mr Purdie said.

During the peak of the season, there’s hardly a day that goes by where there’s not a game of netball or training going on, Mr Purdie said.

“As home to the successful, Suncorp Super Netball winning team Sunshine Coast Lightning, there is no doubt they are also inspiring the next generation of netball superstars on courts across the coast.

SCNA President Tanya Elms said the Association was excited and grateful to have Dan on board as their Patron.

“Dan is an avid fan of our great game and has already shown enormous support for our Association,” Tanya said.

“We look forward to growing our relationship over the coming years.”
