In 2017 Queensland X-Ray sponsored the Galaxy Netball Club in Mackay.
Galaxy Netball Club is comprised of over 20 netball teams of local girls and women of all ages.
During the 2017 season netball fixtures, a group of young ladies made up the newly formed U/12 team ‘Clusters’, and immediately demonstrated their collective determination, skill and resilience working together every week on the court. Rarely defeated, ‘Clusters’ took out the “2017 Runner Up” title at the Mackay Junior Netball Grand Final in August, ending the season on a well-deserved high.
Galaxy teams train weekly, participating in fixtures and carnivals and the club aims to nurture and support multiple teams of girls actively growing into young women with a healthy outlook and positive body image.
‘Galaxy’ promotes the self-development of all members by funding experience players to regularly visit for coaching clinics and motivational talks as positive and active role models for young women.
