We are delighted to offer you the 2022 Super Netball First Nations Replia Ball showcasing the custom artwork by Simone Thomson - Yorta-Yorta/Wurundjeri. 

This ball was used in the Super Netball First Nations Round, titled Winyar Yuringa (Women of the Sun). 

Below is the artwork narrative as discussed by Simone: 

"In memory of my late Aunty Hyllus Maris, fierce warrior winyar (woman) of the Yorta-Yorta and Wurundjeri peoples, activist, founder of Worawa Aboriginal College, the author of Women of the Sun and the deliverer of its spiritual dreaming story. She believed strongly in equality and in educating Aboriginal children, nourishing raw sporting talent with a determination and guardianship likened to that of queens.

As with the sun, Netball Australia spans across country canvassing eucalypt forests and red ochre sands, saltwater mangroves and deep violet ranges. Netball Australia’s commitment to reach remote Aboriginal communities to provide access and opportunities to excel in the game radiates like the sun’s rays touching the furthest corners; the netball community is far spread and inclusive of all females.

It is represented in the core of the sun, the gathering circle for ceremony – netball.

The core represents Netball Australia’s ongoing commitment to work with the Aboriginal community.

Water is represented by the gold wavy circles within the sun’s orb, mountains and valleys are represented in the light pink chevrons – these signify the differing journeys we make over country to join in tanderrum, a celebration of clans coming together – of teams, communities and cultures participating in the sport.

Gold and scarlet mounds represent homelands and families – the Elders, the knowledge holders, the speakers and teachers of culture educating and sharing the old ways amongst the netball community.

They are the bridges of wisdom, they represent reconciliation – ongoing commitment to resolve barriers within the sport to allow a strong, prosperous future.

Journey-track circles lay within the beams of the sun. They signify the journey from the beginning of netball careers to elite athleticism, they signify journeys in skill development and health and fitness – the platform given through ongoing support and opportunity from Netball Australia.

Red ochre painted women represent Women of the Sun, holders of fire and power that light the day sky. They are dressed for ceremony in the fiery red-orange glow. They signify strength and inspiration to all girls and women; they show leadership – they are warrior women who give rise to all females.

Women all around the country are represented in the tiered ‘n’ shapes. This is the foundation of team spirit and the unbreakable bond shared between sisterhood aspiring to success.

The sun’s power source flows onto the tower of women in the form of white sunbeams, ancestral stars – they signify equality, they represent opportunities from Netball Australia and its deep connection to Aboriginal girls and women. It is the solid commitment to build on the community relationship and to encourage all to excel in the sport."

CUSTOMERS FROM EU COUNTRIES

Delivery

Due to the combined impact of Brexit and Covid-19, our couriers are experiencing unprecedented delays and it may take up to 10 days to receive your order. We are looking at alternative shipping options for our customers across Europe, to improve the situation as best we can.

Bulky items sent in to Europe, particularly to the Republic of Ireland, may incur shipping rates in excess of £100 per item. This is due to a combination of Brexit and Covid-19, where our logistics partners’ ability to get goods to customers has been drastically affected. We reserve the right to cancel such orders. 

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we will keep this page updated with any further developments.

Gilbert offers FREE shipping on every order over £200 to the Europe.

For orders between £150 and £200, we charge a fixed rate of £10

For orders under £150, we charge a fixed rate of £35.00 for shipping.  More details can been found in our FAQ below.

Why is there a temporary surcharge for customers in the EU?
You have probably heard that a Free Trade Agreement between the UK and EU has been agreed. This is good news if you are a customer shopping from inside the EU because it means that you have no customs duty or additional taxes to pay when you buy products from our website. However, despite the Trade Deal, there are still new costs for when importing products into the EU from the UK.

Are these charges here to stay?
We are making a substantial investment in infrastructure and new complex import processes that we hope will reduce or remove these costs. We expect to start testing these in January 2021. If things go well, we hope to remove the surcharges by the end of March.

How much is the surcharge?
For orders over €/£100, we are choosing to absorb the costs, but for smaller orders this unfortunately isn’t possible.

I am in a country inside Europe but not inside the EU. Will this affect me?
No - only customers in the EU are affected by this charge

Keep me updated
If you would like to be told as soon as the surcharges have been removed, sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom of this page.

Orders from outside the UK or EU may be subject to local import charges/taxes that are outside our control. Typically you will need to pay them to the carrier.  If you do not pay the carrier the goods will be returned to us. We will then refund you after deducting the cost of carriage incurred by us and any extra charges levied by the carrier.

  • We will refund to the payment source of the original transaction up to the original value of the order excluding shipping costs. Return shipping costs and order delivery charges are only refunded in the event of a faulty item or incorrectly dispatched item.
  • All orders being returned by customers within the EU must be done so by a courier of their choice and are to be paid for by the customer
