To be held between 8-13 March at The Silverdome in Launceston, it’s the first time since 2012 that the national titles have been played in Tasmania.
The last time Tasmania hosted the 21/U national titles was in 2000, also at Launceston, that saw Victoria triumph over South Australia.
South Australia is aiming for its fourth consecutive 21/U title having won the last three national championships played in Canberra (2013), Adelaide (2014) and the Sunshine Coast, Queensland (2015).
Only seven states and territories will compete in Launceston with the Northern Territory withdrawing from the 21/U age group for 12 months.
The new multi-million dollar State Netball Centre in Perth will host its first major event when the 17/U and 19/U national titles are played there between 11-16 April.
Queensland (17/U) – the first the state had won the title since 2001 – and New South Wales (19/U) are the defending champions.
All eight states and territories will contest both age groups.
