The rest of the teams are juniors sides.

"It's the most ever teams that the Moore Carnival has ever had and last year we had 72 teams," Gladstone Netball Association president Kacie Crawford said.

There will be U10, four junior, two cadet categories and two senior divisions in action throughout the weekend.
