Programs and Opportunities Available

All Abilities Membership

Your Club and/or Association can be more inclusive by offering the All Abilities Membership with Netball NSW. By offering the subsidised affiliation cost, you can help reduce the financial barrier to enable people with disability to be a part of our game. All Abilities Players are defined as any person who holds a valid concession card for a disability pension and/or a member of Sports Inclusion Australia. Subsidised cost for the 2020 season is TBC.

For more information on how to set up the All Abilities Membership type at your Club/Association, please email

Inclusive Community Grants

Netball NSW’s Inclusive Community Grants program supports and encourages Affiliated Associations and Clubs to develop closer links with community groups and drive the engagement of new members. Netball NSW Affiliated Associations in 2020 can apply for a grant of up to $1,000.00 to deliver projects to engage diverse communities.


Netball NSW aims to enhance the participation of Indigenous girls and boys in netball to improve their physical fitness, team cooperation and general health and well-being. Netball NSW acknowledges the significant impact sport can have on social cohesion and closing the gap.
