Defence forces clash on netball courts at RAAF base

THE three services of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) went at it over the weekend at the Amberley Airbase.

But it was not war-games they were there for.

Instead 150 Army, Navy and Royal Australian Airforce personnel fought it on for bragging rights on the netball court.

Netball is one of the largest participation sports within the ADF and this is the first year such an inter-services tournament has been held, from which ADF representative teams will be chosen.
