Digital Realty Supporting Netball Program

The Western Sydney Academy of Sport is excited to announce that Digital Realty has become the Official Naming Rights partner for the Academy’s highly successful netball development program.

The Academy’s Digital Realty Netball Program is one of the most successful programs provided to talented young athletes throughout Western Sydney with many of the athletes going on to play professional netball, including Paige Hadley and Kim Ravaillion, who have been members of the Australian Diamonds netball team.

To be known as the “Digital Realty Netball Program,” the high quality squad of 25 athletes will now take great pride in representing one of the region’s most exciting businesses.

Academy CEO Martin Bullock commented, “As a not-for-profit community-based organisation, the Academy relies on the support of its corporate partners to provide the best quality holistic development programs to over 200 athletes annually. Digital Realty’s magnificent support of our Netball Program will enable us to provide a high-quality experience for some of the region’s best young athletes.”

Digital Realty is a global organisation that builds, acquires, manages, and operates data centre campuses across the world.  They have operations based on four continents and 12 countries with approximately 200 data centres across 32 global markets.

Rod Glover, Director of Data Centre Operations, Australia said: “As an organisation with two data centre sites in Erskine Park, we always believed that our investment in the area would help support the development of the Western Sydney region. But for us, it is also about the people, the community, and giving back to those who have helped and welcomed us to the area – that is why we have chosen to work with the Western Sydney Academy. We are pleased to show our support for Western Sydney’s sporting talent and look forward to supporting the squads into 2019!”
