England Netball is committed to an innovative and progressive strategy ‘Your Game Your Way’ where the participant is at the heart of everything England Netball does. This strategy is transforming the sport, enabling growth, retention and a smooth transition through the different stages of a participant’s journey with the game, whether casual players or elite athletes. It has already resulted in over 180,000 women participating in netball on a weekly basis, with England Netball membership exceeding 100,000 for the first time in 2016/17 and continuing to grow year on year. The success has come on the court also with the Roses winning Commonwealth Gold in April 2018. It is an exciting time for the sport and we believe It’s Us It’s Now!
England Netball has embarked on the next stage of its progression, having moved to a new Head Office at Loughborough SportPark. It is challenging itself to become commercially sustainable, whilst continuing to facilitate growth in participation, increasing the sports profile and succeeding at the elite level.
