Australian netball has been hit with another departure following Chrs Symington’s decision to quit as Super Netball CEO.

A week after Netball Australia lost CEO Marne Fechner to cycling, Symington announced on Friday he was standing down for family reasons.

“My wife and I have recently welcomed twin girls into our family, so it’s time I take a step back and spend this special time with my wife and four beautiful daughters,” he said.

“Being a part of Suncorp Super Netball for the past three years is something I’m immensely proud of.

“I look forward to watching the Suncorp Super Netball action with my daughters for years to come.”

Symington will leave his job on December 10. Before his departure he will continue to negotiate a broadcast deal for the competition.

Super Netball League commission chair Marina Go said: “Chris has worked tirelessly during his time in netball to ensure that Suncorp Super Netball remained the world’s premier netball competition, and most recently leading the league to be the first major sporting code to complete a full season following the COVID break.

“We thank him for his incredible contribution to the league and netball as a whole over the past three years and wish him, Kylie and the girls all the best during this exciting time in their life.”
