“We need the world to know more about netball in the Pacific. We’ve been missing from the top 10 for a while but now we are ready and want to be on that stage.” – Vivian Koster CEO, Netball Fiji
It’s been a tumultuous three years for Fiji, with the Covid pandemic following hot on the heels of a measles epidemic. Now one of the most highly Covid-vaccinated countries in the world – 95% of the population have received a single dose, and almost 90% have had both – thanks to a ‘no jab, no job’ government policy, the Pacific nation is set to open its doors to the world again on December 1st.
As restrictions are cautiously eased, Netball Fiji (NF) will hit the ground running, thanks to a recently appointed and vibrant administrative team, and the support of its big sisters, Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand.
