THE local region will be well represented at the Pan Pacific Masters Games at the Gold Coast next month.

This is the eighth edition of the popular games on the Coast and Maranoa teams will be taking part in three of the 38 sports: netball, rugby league and softball.

The Western Star caught up with the netball team called the Maranoa Masters as they fine tuned their preparation with a solid win at the Rec Centre on Thursday against Yakka.

It was hard yakka against a younger team but the Masters showed plenty of guile and no lack of fitness to run out 33-26 winners.

Team coach and umpire Lynn Lee said the team called themselves Masters in the Roma competition as they are among three teams that play under the Maranoa Netball Association.

"Our team is called Maranoa when we compete at the 2012 Pan Pac Masters Games on the Gold Coast from Saturday, November 3, to Friday, November 9," Lee said.

"There are over a dozen teams in the competition and we also have to supply umpires."

The minimum age for the Masters netball is 30 and games will be played at the Southport Carrara Netball Association in Ashmore.

Good luck to the ladies as they attempt to bring a medal back to the Maranoa.
