Celebrate and become a world record breaker with England Netball!

Get ready to blow out the candles, raise a glass and break a world record as England Netball celebrates our 90th anniversary next February!

To mark this momentous occasion, we are inviting the whole of our netball family to join us as we attempt to break a Guinness World Record for ‘Largest Netball Exhibition Match’ ever.

Not only will we be attempting to break a world record we are also looking to celebrate our 90th anniversary through our Heritage project.

Check out our new Heritage website to find all about how netball has developed through the years. Why not seek inspiration by taking part in period costume or playing to the old rules?!

We will descend on Whitechapel, London for a marathon 90 hour netball match on Friday 12th February all the way through Monday 15th February. 

Matches will be played on an hourly basis and we are inviting all clubs interested in helping us to break the record, to sign up and get involved.

We are also using this fantastic occasion to show off the generous nature of our fabulous netball family and raise a whole lot of money for Sport Relief.

Therefore, entry for teams is £100 with 100% of the funds received heading off to our chosen charity.

 Throughout the record attempt we will be hosting teams with some of the biggest names in netball’s past and present, a famous face may even appear in your match!
