Contiki Holidays, a leader in holidays designed especially for 18 to 35 year-olds, has partnered with Netball Singapore to launch beach netball festival. The Contiki Beach Netball Festival will be held on Palawan Beach, Sentosa in Singapore on Sunday 8 March 2009 between 10am to 5.30pm.

Miss Jessica Tan, Member of Parliament for East Coast GRC, and the World Netball Championships 2011 Singapore Chairman, also an avid Netball fan, will be the Guest-of-honour for the event.

Breaking the traditional Netball mould with the introduction of 50-foot by 50-foot sand courts, teams not only have to adapt to the unfamiliar surface but also tackle the fast pace that a four-on-four game of Netball brings.

In sync with Contiki’s trademark tours for only 18 to 35 year-olds, Netball Singapore will be organising three categories for the one-day event:

• Women Under 23 – JC and Tertiary Institutions Only
• Women Open – Ages 18 to 35 Only
• Mixed Open – Ages 18 to 35 Only

For each category, teams will not only be playing for pride but for over Sin$10,000 in cash and prizes. The top team from each category will walk away with Sin$1,000 in cash and Sin$1,800 in Contiki travel vouchers. Cash prizes of Sin$500 and Sin$300 will be awarded for the runners up and third placing for each of the categories respectively.

Entry costs Sin$60 for a team of six and upon successful registration, each team will receive a top to be worn on the day.

For the Contiki Beach Netball Festival, street Netball rules will be used. This means games will be played on half-courts with four per team. No position bibs will be used while only two members from each team are allowed in the circle at any time. The matches will be in round robin format with the top two teams from each group advancing to the knockout stage on the way to the finals. Each team will have 10 minutes to outscore their opponents in this event. The closing date for entries is 28 February 2009.

Nicholas Lim, regional director, Contiki Holidays said, “I’m pleased to partner with Netball Singapore in a bid to introduce the sport to 18 to 35 year-olds here in Singapore. As an escorted holiday expert, Contiki has long offered young travellers exciting experiences and now we feel we can do the same through this sport.”

There will also be a string of fringe activities happening that day. Admission is free and the public are welcome to watch the games and join in the fun.
