From humble beginnings in 1929 when it had only a handful of players, Netball NSW has grown to become one of the largest independent sports organisations in this state.

Currently with over 115,000 members playing and enjoying netball at all levels of performance in cities, suburbs and country towns in all corners of New South Wales, our sport continues to grow both on and off the court as Netball NSW becomes increasingly successful and professional.

Netball NSW also conducts a range of competitions catering for a variety of skills levels and ages including:
Premier League 
State Age Championships
State Championships
DOOLEYS Metro League
Court Craft Night Interdistrict

History shows that NSW is one of the most successful netballing states in Australia, claiming countless state titles and producing some of the best players in the country.

From their local club team, to association representative teams, from talent squads and Regional Academies of Sport, talented players are also offered pathways to continue their netball pursuits as they strive to represent New South Wales or even Australia.
