A.B Paterson College Netball Club has gone to great lengths to design a unique custom made netball uniform for girls to wear for Club and representative games. We are excited to incorporate this special “dress” as part of the A.B. Paterson College uniform, and as such expect that you will wear your uniform with pride.

All players will take the court in full uniform as follows:

  • Netball Dress
  • Netball Knicks (black)
  • Netball Club supplied sport socks
  • Netball Club supplied hair tie (red, yellow, green)

Due to the design of our dress, all under garments such as crop tops and sport bras are required to be a “racer back” style to ensure invisibility. (Please note no straps are to be showing).

During the colder months players are permitted to wear their A.B. Paterson College Sports Jacket.

Please contact the Club’s Uniform Convenor, Rebecca Ferguson, at netballclub@abpat.qld.edu.au to organise a Uniform kit and/or single uniform items. Sample dress sizes (girls size 6 to ladies size 18) are available to try on at the College Uniform Shop prior to placing your order.
