The Straits Trophy aims to bring together netball teams from Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Singapore; we hope to provide an equal balance of teams from these areas. We will have competition for U9, U10, U11, U12, U13 and U14. When all spaces have been filled, a waiting list will be created and communicated with the team’s director.
The cost of the tournament will be 150RM (S$50) per age group, per team and this will be sent as an invoice to teams’ main contact (as provided on the link above).
The tournament will be held across six netball courts. There will also be a map provided to help you orientate yourself to the correct court.

Teams are to bring balls for practice and warm ups. Each coach will umpire their own games, alongside the opposition coach.
There will be food available to purchase from a variety of vendors on the day. Food can be purchased using Singapore Dollars or Malaysian Ringgits.
Schools should remind all players to bring a water bottle that can be refilled from the water dispensers provided. There will also be a refreshment stall available to all participants, staff and parents. Sports drinks, tea and coffee are available on site; no alcohol is to be brought onto the campus.

Lightning is indicated by a siren and a flashing light from the lightning alarm system. All players will be directed to the main sports hall or dining hall, where they will remain until the all-clear signal from the lightning alarm has sounded and the Tournament Director has advised play can continue. If there is a significantly prolonged delay, a coaches’ meeting will be called and a decision about proceeding will be agreed.
