Netball

Netball is a team sport prodominantly played by females, although males are ok to play in some versions and or non-competitive matches. In a regular match there are two teams playing against each other with seven positions to be filled, alternative versions can be played if there isn't enough players but league matches will need there to be seven players.

Locally there are a few organisations we are aware of that help provide a range of organised activities and training that can help you get started, rekindle your interest or continue your participation.

The National Governing Body that supports the sport is England Netball and they have a website with information covering all aspects from local clubs to the England International team, made from English players and competing against other nations in friendlies and competitions across the World; recent highlight winning Gold in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and finishing third in the 2019 World Cup. Internationaly the sport is governed by the International Netball Federation.

We haven't carried out checks on the clubs and organisations that are listed and as a participant you should check you are happy with their safety and quality of its activity provision prior to participating with them. Don't wait until the start of your first session to ask questions about their qualifications, experience or the level of activities as the  coach/instructor will be busy planning the session and may not have the information with them; but do ask before your first session and all should be happy to answer your questions.

 

If you provide opportunities for residents or visitors to get involved in Netball and would like your club or organisation to be listed then email Active Swale and we can get your details uploaded.
