What if our team isn't Division One standard?

Our leagues are split into different divisions so they will cater for all abilities.  When applying for a league, you will be asked for the ability level of your team so we can try to match you to the right division.  Promotion and relegation at the end of each mini season will also ensure your team will quickly rise or fall to the right level.

What is there to play for?

Trophies are awarded to the each divisional winners and runners up.  There will also be player of the season awards for each division and player of the match nominations for every game. In addition, they’ll be relegation and promotion battles each season. We also run special cup and one day tournaments.

In the unlikely event that the opposition doesn't turn up, your team will be awared the points for the game.  You will not be charged your match fee and you can also use the court for the allotted match time for a friendly or training.

What should we wear?

Some of our teams choose to wear full kits, but that’s not essential.  You can wear whatever you feel comfortbale in.  Netball bibs will be provided by the league on match nights.

How do we pay our match fees?

We are happy to offer you the flexibility to pay your match fees in whichever way suit you team.

This includes options such as paying your matches fees up front at the start of the season, on a monthly or weekly basis.  You can pay your match fees by cash or cheque at the venue on your match night or send a BACS payment via online banking
