NET2019: Danielle's work in Zambia

As momentum builds towards the netball world cup next year, a key focus for the International Netball federation (INF), and NWC2019 organisers is the continued development of the sport globally, prompting the launch of the legacy project; NET2019.

Funded by UK Sport, and delivered by England Netball in partnership with the INF, NET2019 aims to provide coaching advice and facilitated netball sessions to empower women and girls through the power of netball around the world.

In particular, the scheme will place an emphasis on two key territories, Africa and South America – continents where netball is rapidly gaining influence. Predominantly NET2019 will focus its work in Zambia and Argentina. Here it will work with each of the country’s netball associations to develop the provision of netball at grassroots levels, whilst also supporting the development of talent and high performance programmes, which have been proven to raise the profile of the sport within their communities.

Check out the digital diary of netball coach Danielle, who has been out in Zambia:

Danielle will be returning in August but has asked for clubs and organisations to pledge to each sponsor a player £150 to kit them out for the Netball World Cup Qualifiers. Details on how to sponsor a player will be released in due course.
