Dear Sir,

On Saturday evening January 5, 2013, I attended the ladies netball games at Bernard Park (National facility].

To my astonishment as soon as the games for the evening were finished the netball poles were removed and ‘puff’ the lights were turned off.

The ladies didn’t have time to change in warm wear and parents were forced to be calling out their children’s names to find them.

All this taking place in the dark.

As I understand this is not the first time this type of disrespectful behaviour has happened.

Is netball not our women’s national sport? Does this same action take place at the National Stadium after a men’s football game is finished?

Come on Department of Youth and Sport this has to be better! Just ask any one of the 100 voices left in the dark.
