Commonwealth Bank Trophy

The Commonwealth Bank Trophy was the pre-eminent national netball competition in Australia from 1997 to 2007.

It was established in 1997 as a true national league to replace the ailing, state club-based Mobil League. Designed from the beginning to be more marketable to the general public, it saw large increases in crowd sizes and sponsorship over its predecessor. From 2008, it was replaced by the ANZ Championship.

Famous quotes containing the words commonwealth and/or bank:

    I’the commonwealth I would by contraries
    Execute all things; for no kind of traffic
    Would I admit; no name of magistrate;
    Letters should not be known; riches, poverty,
    And use of service, none; contract, succession,
    Bourn, bound of land, tilth, vineyard, none;
    No use of metal, corn, or wine, or oil;
    No occupation; all men idle, all,
    And women too, but innocent and pure.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
    Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
    Quite overcanopied with luscious woodbine,
    With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine:
    There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
    Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
