Netball has changed a lot over the years. With increased speed, athleticism, the ever-growing popularity of mixed netball teams and an overall rise in player skills, playing Netball has become an intensified physical contest.

At the same time, netball is a social game and half the fun is meeting like-minded people. Our community of netball enthusiasts are welcoming, nurturing and open minded. All player levels and ages (18 and up) are encouraged to join.

If you would like to join, the balls in your court.
