"I'm thrilled to again be bringing the mass participation netball event to the Sunshine Coast," Chris Symington, Netball Australia's executive general manager of events, said.
"NetFest was really embraced by the Sunshine Coast region last year with more than 2,000 participants taking part in the four days of activity, so we're excited to roll out the event in this iconic beach-side location again."
He added: "Having been around for so many years now, NetFest is firmly etched on the netball calendar and we believe we will continue to grow the event and overall netball participation with the ongoing brilliant support of Tourism and Events Queensland and the Sunshine Coast Council.
