INDOOR NETBALL: Emma Case will lead the Rockhampton women's A team in its quest for success at the Super League Netball Series this weekend.

Thirty-nine indoor netball teams from Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns will take part in the annual carnival, to be played at the Indoor Sports Arena in Rockhampton.

Games will be played from 6.30pm today, and from 8am on Saturday and Sunday.

ISA manager/owner Trent Clarke said team numbers were up on last year.

"We will have well over 300 athletes so it will be a big weekend. The teams love the chance to play against the best from other centres in our region,” he said.

"There will be competition in seven different divisions - ladies A, B and C, mixed A, B and C and men's.

"There will be non-stop action, with 95 games played over the three days.

"Rockhampton's always been fairly strong in the series. We didn't get the results we were hoping for last year but we will definitely be in the thick of things this year.”

Carnival convenor and ladies A team member Carrie Bennet is confident about her team's chances.

"We have a really strong team and we've been training really, really hard for the last three months,” she said.

"We've come together really well and I would say it's the best team we've put forward in the last few years.

"I expect Mackay will be our biggest competitor but we're hoping to give them a run for their money and hopefully beat them.”

Bennet said there was plenty of talent in the team, which would be ably led by skipper Case and the sharp-shooting Juanita Hill.

Players in action this weekend will be vying for selection in North Queensland rep teams.

Round 2 of the SLNS will be played in Mackay in three weeks, with the third round in Townsville in June.
