The 2015 winter netball season is fast-approaching, with Clubs and Associations across New South Wales now taking registrations.
In 2014, over 113,000 people across the State enjoyed participating in organised netball competitions and programs.
Whether playing to meet new people, to have fun with friends, wanting to improve fitness and wellbeing, or like the competitive aspect of sport – netball Clubs and Associations throughout NSW have a range of options to suit all needs.
The bond with their teammates is a big reason why a lot of the NSW Swifts 2015 player roster why they love netball. Watch the video below to discover why they took up netball and what else they love about the sport.
One of the many great features of netball is that it’s played in a safe and respectful environment, which is particularly important for children who may not have participated in sport previously.
Registered Clubs and Associations run a junior program called ANZ NetSetGO; Netball Australia’s introductory program for netball developed to provide children from the age of 5 to 10 years with the best possible introduction to the sport. Last year in NSW alone, over 28,000 juniors took part in this program with this number set to jump in 2015 as its popularity grows.
