The Sri Lanka Netball Federation has launched a massive development plan in their attempt to promote the game in the outstations and to make the game the most popular women’s sport in the country.
The newly-elected Secretary of the Netball Federation Damayanthi Jayatilleke stated that already they have started a series of programs and new tournaments while targeting next year’s World Championships in Singapore.
The 33-year-old former Sri Lanka captain and dynamic centre field player said that their focus has been towards the Northern and the Eastern Provinces where the game has taken a new dimension after the culmination of the most difficult period in that area.
