Beware the Men in Pink

There were some good lookin’ sorts at the Pat Gallagher Netball Centre on Monday night.

Their tight lycra uniforms and bright magenta hair caused a few stares but they were oblivious in their determination to win.

The feature game was being held as part of the annual Pink Night fundraiser to help fight breast cancer.

The night was organised by the Spectrum Netball Club from Western Australia and traditionally features a game against guys wearing the club’s old uniforms.

Donations poured in from spectators, other players and officials.

“Everyone was so generous it was amazing,” Spectrum organiser Mardi Miles said.

“It was a fantastic night and we raised $1534.

“The guys won the game. We let them because we want them back to play again in two years’ time.”

The men who took part came from around Australia – Touch Football Melbourne, Boomer Baseball in NSW, the Polar Bears basketball team in the NT, the Syndicate cricket team from Queensland and the Alice Masters basketball team.
