The Geelong & District Football Netball League is the oldest surviving football competition in Victoria . It is one of three Australian rules football leagues in the Geelong area, the others being the Geelong Football League and the Bellarine Football League. There are 12 teams, and the league has produced over 600 VFL/AFL players.
In 2002, the GDFL adopted netball introducing A Grade, B Grade & C Grade senior teams, as well as U/17’s, U/15’s & U/13’s junior netball. In 2009, the GDFL introduced a fourth senior section, D Grade, where East Geelong and Werribee have the past 3 of the last 6 D Grade premierships.
The future of the GDFNL is strong with a large number participants taking to the field of play weekly. The GDFNL is continually building on its brand and the sports we love.
