“Netball Queensland has launched a passionate defence of the decision to allow the team to compete in the tournament alongside girls.7news.com.au
“We want to make clear that there is a place for everyone in our sport,” it said in a statement on Thursday.
“We stand by the decision to choose inclusion over exclusion. And, to invite the Queensland Suns to return to the State Titles given they have limited opportunities to play in a high performance environment due to low participation numbers and limited pathways.
“We recognise that change is sometimes uncomfortable, and we are buoyed by the support of our wider netball community who are embracing men and boys in competition formats and have done so for some time in a mixed netball capacity.”
