The first two parts of a six part documentary on the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball Season premiered on Tuesday night.

The first two episodes of the new six-part netball documentary Everything is Possible: Inside season 2020 premiered on Tuesday night.

Vixens’ defender Jo Weston spoke at the premiere about what the documentary means for netball and playing in front of the Vixens faithful in 2021.

“I haven’t seen it yet, so I’m a little bit nervous as to what’s going to be in the six-part series,” Weston said.

“I’m not sure if I’m going to feature, I did get filmed a little bit whilst we were away but I’m not sure if I’m going to end up on the editing floor or not.”

The six-part series is massive for netball, with the documentary being available on Kayo and Fox Sports, it allows netball to reach a wider audience.

“I think it’s really exciting to be able to have something like this on what is probably a minor sport, like not a big professional sport within Australia,” Weston said.

“I’m hoping there is lots of viewers that come from the netball world but also a broader sports sphere.”

The documentary provides insight on all eight clubs and with Weston being a one club player, the prospect of having an insight into other teams.

“I keep forgetting that there is going to be quite a lot of insight on how the other clubs operate,” Weston said.

“There is a little bit of player movement during the off-season, but I’ve played with the same team my whole netball career, which is a luxury.

“But it also means I’ve had a pretty similar experience most of the time. So I think it’s going to be a really good insight into how other teams operate, how they’re coaching stuff and all the other bits and pieces.”

2021 will see the Melbourne Vixens play in front its home crowd for the first time since the 2019 semi-final against the Collingwood Magpies, which is an exciting time for Weston and the Vixens.

“It’s going to be so exciting to play back in Melbourne in front of our vixen’s home crowd,” Weston said.

“We had a little taste of that in Ballarat, but we have such a loyal fan base who stuck with us when we made the trip up to Queensland last year.

“So it’s going to be great to reward them with an awesome experience back in our home town of Melbourne which is the sporting capital of Australia.”
