Mr ALEXANDER (Bennelong) (13:53): I wish to recognise a wonderful sporting organisation in my electorate of Bennelong, the Eastwood Ryde Netball Association. Eastwood Ryde is a New South Wales district netball association with over 3,500 members. The association comprises 30 clubs with 359 teams registered in the Saturday competition, playing at Brush Farm Park and Meadowbank Park. Last year the Eastwood Ryde under 21 team was crowned state champion after being undefeated all season. Players Amy Sommerville and Kimberley Ravaillion were selected in the Australian under 19 team and competed with Sophie Halpin in the national championships, and Phoebe Seamer represented Australia in the international schoolgirls championship. Anita Keelan is the state assistant coach, and Anne Doring does a sterling job as the President of the Eastwood Ryde Netball Association.

I am delighted to be joining all the team next Monday night to turn on the floodlights at Meadowbank for the first time. I wish Eastwood Ryde Netball Club all the very best for the 2012 season and congratulate these great role models on behalf of all our Bennelong community.
