THE WARRNAMBOOL and District league has pledged its fees to Netball Victoria despite a season not going ahead in 2020 due to the coronavirus.
Netball Victoria is offering full, partial refunds or the opportunity to roll your membership over to next season.
WDFNL netball secretary Veronica Cannon said the league was pledging its membership to the state's top body and is encouraging its members to do the same.

Cannon said in a post on the league's Facebook page on Saturday there were many benefits to pledging memberships.
"While we haven't been able to play, there has been much work behind the scenes to support players and associations through some challenges and trying times to get community sport back up and running," she said in the statement.
"They have also moved many courses to an online format that members can take advantage of through your membership.
"Also keep in mind that your VNA is valid for the whole year so if you intend to do some pre-season training at the end of the year you will still be covered.
"We, the WDFNL Netball Sub Committee, have decided to pledge our affiliation fees as we have certainly appreciated the support we have received and continue to receive from NV."
Netball Victoria is also asking members to pledge their fees to the body as it deals with the effects of the coronavirus.
Cannon said in the coming weeks those who have paid their membership can expect to receive an email from Netball Victoria in regards to refunds and pledging.
