Want to play netball regularly, but don’t want to be part of a club? You’re in luck – there are so many great social netball leagues in London. You can sign up as a whole team, a small group of friends or as an individual. You’ll get to know lots of people once you sign up, and can get more games by ringing for other teams.
The Netball Club
The Netball Club is a new netball league created by four netballers in Crystal Palace where the emphasis is on meeting people and having fun. Check out my interview with founder Becci, my review of their session with Eboni Beckford-Chambers or their website for all the info.
Playnetball.com runs leagues in Angel and Highbury. The standard ranges from C-grade (beginners and social) to A-grade (competitive). They also run versatility leagues, where players rotate between positions after each goal. The team also organise regular weekend tournaments, trips on tour and social events for all the players to get involved in! Have a look at my interview with Bhav or check out their website for all the details.
Netbusters run some fab leagues around London – they have beginner, social and intermediate grades, as well as running Back to Netball sessions for anyone who hasn’t played in a while. They also organise regular charity tournaments! Check out my interview with league manager Amy or go to their website to find out more.
Powerplay are one of the biggest organisers of social netball leagues in London – they have loads of locations and levels to suit everyone and you can sign up as a team or as an individual. Check out our interview with Powerplay manager Leona or go to their website for more information.
The All Nations
The All Nations operate social netball leagues throughout London – check out my interview with Islington league manager Sarah for more info on why you should head over to Highbury Fields. Leagues are of different levels so there’s something to suit everyone, from beginners to club players. Check out their website to find out more.
Netball Now is a new initiative by England Netball. It’s different to Back to Netball in that there’s no coaching involved, you just turn up and play a game with different people each time. Search here for sessions near you.
