SA Premier League Netball
Club Newton Jaguars will spend
this weekend in Waikerie as
part of their annual senior squad
A highlight of the camp will be
the “super coaching clinic” from
3pm to 5pm on Saturday, followed
by a showcase game between the
Jaguars and the Riverland Netball
Association representative team at
the Waikerie Community Sports
Centre (WCSC) main court at
WCSC manager Jason Bald
said the event would help build
a stronger relationship between
netball in the Riverland and in
“The camp is a first for Waikerie
and the Riverland region in which
players will meet fans and develop
stronger links with the communi-
ty,” he said.
“It’s a great coup for the
Waikerie Sports Centre, Waikerie
Netball Club and the Riverland
Netball Association to pull this
type of event together, and will
coincide with the start of the 2017
Riverland Netball Association sea-
The Jaguars Stephanie Sarro has
a connection to the region, growing
up in Berri and representing both
Berri and the Riverland previously,
and Bald said it would be a special
moment to see home-grown prod-
uct representing the Jaguars.
“Steph’s home town is Berri,
and I’m sure the local kids and
community out there will love hav-
ing a home-grown hero bringing
the club down to visit,” he said.
Jaguars coach Robyn Jezewski
said the weekend would be benefi-
cial for netball in the area.
“We know how much region-
al areas love their netball so it’s
a great opportunity for the club
and our Premier League squad to
develop a strong pathway for the
Riverland juniors,” she said.
“Regional South Australia
has been an important recruiting
ground for most of our national
and state league clubs, with some
of South Australia’s greatest play-
ers coming from the country.”
RENMARK’S Eleni Nikas has been
acknowledged for her fair play on the
tennis court by winning the 2016/17
Darnley Taylor Junior Sportsmanship
The award was set up to recognise
the significant contribution of the late
Darnley Taylor on Riverland tennis and
his strong attitude towards sportsman-
Nominees are judged on their par-
ticipation in local tennis, both on and off
the court, with a focus on sportsmanship
throughout the season.
The talented junior is a regular
participant in a number of tourna-
ments including the Riverland Junior
Development Series and the Foundation
Eleni’s work off the court at her club
also played a vital role in her award win.
She was recognised for her work in
helping to set up courts and club rooms
before competition on Saturdays while
also helping coach younger players at
the club during the week.
Eleni’s coach at Renmark, John Pick,
was glowing in his praise for the award
“She is well liked by her peers and
is a wonderful role model for younger
players,” he said.
“She has involved herself in all areas
of the club.
“She has contributed to Riverland
tennis across both junior and senior lev-
els and is a proud and loyal member of
her own club.”
Pick also said he isn’t surprised at her
success on the court.
“Eleni is an outstanding athlete who
has worked hard on all aspects of her
game,” he said.
“She is technically sound, quick on
her feet and has a good understanding of
the way the game is played.”
Previous winners of the award
