GRANGE UNITING NETBALL CLUB COMMENCED IN 1954.
The Club was then known as 'The Grange Methodist Women's Basketball Club' - with ONE team. Miss Margaret McCullouch was Secretary.
By 1970 the name was changed to the 'Grange Methodist Netball Club' when the name netball was brought in Australia wide. Lorna Godfrey was Secretary with 8 teams in the club. The uniform was a black tunic with white shirt. Players also wore long white socks with black Volleys (no ASICS back then!).
Lorna Godfrey was Secretary from 1970 - 1975. Taking over from Lorna was Miss Helen Plush (now Helen Surplice). Helen was secretary from 1970 - 1972.
