In addition to our affiliation with the state body, Brisbane Netball Association is affiliated with the Combined Australian Netball Association. CANA was formed in late 1984 by representatives of Netball Associations from Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania and has grown to include representative associations from Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia.
CANA’s annual tournament attracts teams from across the country with teams from 13 & Under up to Masters, Men’s and Mixed. It is the only tournament that includes all ages and genders together at one event. Upward of 50 teams enter the event each year and it is held at different venues around Australia.
