Celebrating with Volunteers

The ONE Awards are a series of events delivered by Regional Netball Boards (groups of volunteers that support the delivery of community netball) and England Netball, to recognise and celebrate the amazing individuals and organisations that enrich lives on and beyond the court each and every year.

Nominated individuals will be invited to one of nine Regional ONE Awards events taking place across the country with the regional winners then invited to the National ONE Awards celebration later in the year.

The categories and criteria are:

  • Coach of the Year – Children & Young People
  • Coach of the Year – Adults
  • Community Official of the Year (in honour of Sheelagh Redpath)
  • Outstanding Contribution of the Year (in memory of Mary Bulloch)
  • Pioneer of the Year (in memory of Muriel McNally)
  • Unsung Hero of the Year (in a Club or League)
  • Community Club of the Year
  • Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Teacher of the Year
  • Inclusion Award

Nominees must be an individual member of England Netball for all awards apart from Inclusion Award.

In addition to the annual celebrations, we have other local recognition schemes that your Regional Office or local Netball Development Officer can help you learn more about, including Pass on Your Passion which is a recognition scheme for volunteers between 12 – 25 years old.
