PCNC Kicks Off Round 1 Sunday 27th October 2019

Posted by Near the Hoop on October 26, 2019 at 10:40 AM

So, finally after three weeks of trials the PCNC gets underway Sunday 27th October 2019, bright and early.


While many may still be nursing the remnants of a heavy Saturday night get together, the PCNC ladies of divisions 16 to 13 will be parked and ready at 8:00 am at the Bisini netball courts, ready to rock and roll…..


It’s the first game of the season and after three weeks of getting the cobwebs out, Port Moresby’s biggest sporting competition, involving some 90 odd business houses and 103 teams, yes I did say one hundred and three netball teams, competing at this year’s Private Companies Netball Competition, (the PCNC).


Spanning virtually six months the competition of seventeen divisions is played every Sunday until about March next year when the grand finals are held for each division.


This year there are seventeen (17) divisions of six teams each and an elite or Premier Division which this year is comprised of seven teams.


Tomorrow is day one of the completion proper and with as much aplomb as you can expect, the games will start on time and during the course of the day teams of the various divisions will come and go but the PCNC has always been a full day event for the ladies as they mingle and enjoy each others company throughout the day.


It is a family oriented event and husbands and boyfriends are encouraged to attend with the family to watch mum or the significant other play and to allow the families mingle and interact outside the office environment. It is often here that great friendships are built, great rivalries are created, networking and relationships promoted and a healthy lifestyle encouraged among the working women of Port Moresby and the greater NCD.


For many of the new or newer teams, this will be one of the most important weekly appointments you have as you and your team mates play on behalf of you and your company for that little bit of swagger and friendly competition among you and your contemporaries to be the best in your division for 2019/2020……


Over the last three weeks, Near the Hoop has been taking images and putting together a dossier of stories which will be articulated across several mediums, but for the convenience of you all, it will be a digital and print media support for the PCNC. Because images are difficult to manage on print media, they will be stored on the NTH Website and on the NTH Facebook group and page with links to the existing PCNC page.


All you need to do is be a member of the "Near the Hoop" website and you have access to all the facilities on the site including our gallery of images.


A Newsletter called “The PCNC” will commence publication very soon which will telegraph the stories and some of the images. Every time there is an opportunity we will be inviting the other media platforms to also join the competition for an update. This is how we hope to take the profile of the country’s biggest sporting competition to the next level.
