For Fa’afafine, Samoa’s third gender, netball started out simply as a game that appealed more than the rugby codes. Over time, however, it has become a safe haven of acceptance, community and friendship where all three genders enjoy respect. It appeals both on and off the court as there are many ways to get involved.
The Australian aid funded Pacific Sports Partnerships are fostering inclusion through netball. Mixed competetions welcome everyone and the Fa'afafine players appreciate this, as well as dominate the competition.
