Sporting fans of all walks of life braved the chilly weather at Warrnambool's Reid Oval for the Hampden league's grand final on Saturday.
Supporters didn't let the rain dampen their spirits, especially 11-year-old Matilda Anderson from Cobden who crafted her own netball outfit to cheer on her team.
"My favourite thing about the day has been dressing up," she said.
"I had an old netball dress and got an old centre bib, and then I put my friend Bec's name on the back of it."
She said she loved watching netball for the pace of the game.
"I like the way the rhythm works in it and watching the people play," she said.
Kevin Boyle has been a Terang supporter for most of his life, but showed out on Saturday to throw his support behind North Warrnambool.
The Naringle local was never able to play football himself back in his day between owning his own transport company and being injured.
"I never got to play footy because I busted my knee and I ran my own business, which meant I was out most weekends," he said.
"My son played football under North Warrnambool's current coach, so I'm supporting them today.
"It's good to get out in the community and support local sport."
Jodie McIntosh, of Digby and Rose Wombwell, of Heywood travelled to town to watch the Hamilton Kangaroos.
"I think the weather will play a big part in today's results," Ms McIntosh said.
"I got involved with the club because my daughter started playing, she hasn't played for the last two years but I really enjoy the social side of it as well as watching the quality of the netball through the Hampden league.
"So I'm still here, she's long gone but I'm still here."
Ms Wombwell coached the team for the last three years.
"I had a trip overseas this year so I wasn't able to coach. It's great to come and support them," she said.
Gary Somerville, Kaye Sheldon and granddaughter Audrey Sheldon travelled from Bendigo to watch the grand final.
"My son's playing in the seconds, we were brought up with football, that's why we love watching it," Ms Sheldon said.
She said her son broke his neck playing football and overcame the injury, so she doesn't get as nervous watching it anymore.
"He's had a broken neck already, he's still playing so you don't worry about it so much anymore. It can't get much worse than that."
