Newington Netball Junior Club secretary Nicole Smith said at the end of last year, both clubs had considered folding before opting to merge instead.
Smith said the Inter 2 grand final was a derby day with Newington 1 up against Newington 2.
She said Newington 1 were undefeated all season “by huge margins” and while Newington 2 came out firing, the more experienced team closed the season as undefeated premiers with a 31-8 victory.
In the Division 1 grand final, Smith said patience in the attacking end in the final minutes of the game was enough to secure a tight two-goal win for Phoenix, but unfortunately up against Guildford Knights in Division 2, Phoenix finished just short to be runners up.
In other results, Regents Park 4 won the Inter 1 final against Holroyd Hotshots 2, 31-25; the 12 Years final was won by Regents Park 7 against Holroyd Hotshots 5, 31-21; and the Composite 10-11 title went to Guildford Knights 8 beating the Holroyd Hotshots, 14-12.
