The Academy is excited to announce that Digital Realty has extended its support of the Digital Realty Netball program for a further three years. The Netball program was given a significant boost in 2019 when Digital Realty – a leading global provider of data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions with a strong data centre footprint at Erskine Park business centre in Sydney – came on board as our Program Partner.

Focusing on athlete technical, educational and personal development platforms, the Academy’s program has been highly successful in identifying and developing some of the State – and Australia’s – best young netballers including Australian Diamond representatives Kim Ravaillion and Paige Hadley.

Aside from their technical and educational development the girls will also be participating in the highly competitive Clubs NSW Academy Games in April 2021, and Netball NSW’s Academy Challenge to be held in September 2021.

Digital Realty’s Director of Data Centre Operations in Australia, Rod Glover, expressed his support for the region’s talented young netballers, “We are fully committed to both business and community development within the regions in which we operate. We are very proud of providing our support for the WSAS Netball Program to further the development of these young athletes as future sporting and community leaders”.

Academy CEO Martin Bullock commented on the partnership saying, “Digital Realty is a strong supporter of our regional community and in particular our aspiring young athletes, and their commitment for another three years is providing fantastic support for our future champions”.
