The Huddle is a brand new feature in the Virtual Netball Club (VNC) and promises to do what all good huddles do – bring the whole Netball Family together! We want to champion and celebrate your stories, and the stories of the people who inspire you.
Herts & Essex Sports Centre
Working in collaboration with the help of England Netball forums, comprehensive restart guidance and commitment from volunteers, the Herts & Essex School Sports Centre in Bishop’s Stortford, Swan Netball Club and Bishop’s Stortford District Netball League (BSDNL) successfully got players safely back on court.
The Northants Rise Together Leagues
Driven by their love for the game and desire to enrich the lives of the Northants Netball Family after a tough year, Yvonne Blunt (County Chair of Northamptonshire) and Kelly Thomson (Northampton Netball Development Officer) knew that if the sport was to return, it would need to be delivered very differently.
Staffordshire County and Stoke-on-Trent
Sam Oliver and Julie Tinsley played a significant role in securing £10,000 of vital Sport England funds to enable the safe return of hundreds of netballers in Staffordshire after lockdown, despite the challenges presented to them by the pandemic.
The South Virtual Netball League
With so many of us accessing netball via virtual means this past year, we wanted to start by celebrating the role Jan Johnson has played in setting up a regional virtual league, keeping players connected, motivated and engaged during lockdown. A huge thank you from all of us here at England Netball and everyone who has enjoyed being part of the league.
