Milne Bay communities comprising small hamlets are spread into fairly remote locations.  Poor road transport and communications only makes contact difficult, but despite these impediments, netball still thrives in the province.

Alotau is the formal association affiliated to the PNG Netball Federatio but each rural and village community have their own network of social and school competitions that simply play netball for the love of it.
