The HeartKids Cup was a triumphant success on all fronts this weekend, with the preseason tournament providing both a preseason hit-out and a valuable fundraising opportunity for the heart health charity.
While the 11 sides which lined up all had the chance to blow off the cobwebs, the most important part of the day - the fundraising - was as successful as it's ever been.
HeartsKids Cup organiser Mardi Aplin said the ninth edition of the tournament had raised over $1100 over the two days of competition.
"I am so thankful for all the support from Netball NSW and Netball ACT and the Netball NSW franchises," she said.
"Next year is 10 years and will be bigger and better."
NSW under 17s won the division one title over the GWS Opens, while Baulkham Hills won the division two title against NSW Emerging Talent.
The Orange side, named Heartkids Orange, came third in second division.
"They had a slow start which they went down a few games on day one but won all games on Sunday," Aplin said.
