Summary This season, the women of Melbourne Phoenix Netball Club will again put their personal lives and other careers on hold and train to exhaustion at least six times a week for the love of their sport and a shot at glory. These players are the best in the world yet, in an era of multimillion dollar sporting competitions, the clubs in the National Netball League operate on shoestring budgets and are run largely by volunteers. The Last Great Amateurs follows players, coach and administrators through a year of pain and passion, rivalry and camaraderie, fundraising raffles and contract battles. To watch these talented, dedicated sportswomen on the court is remarkable but the story of how they make it there is equally enthralling
