Why Netball?

Netball is a great sport for all ages and abilities. Whether you haven’t played for years, are just starting out, have been playing club netball for some time, or are at the top of your game on the International stage there’s a spot for you.

Not only does netball have the obvious physical benefits, it is a sport that teaches skills like agility, coordination, teamwork, communication, decision making, resilience and determination – to name just a few.

We believe in #EveryBodyForNetball, and we try to ensure that Netball really is open to all through Netball Scotland’s Range of Programmes and Pathways:

  • Primary School aged children can begin their netball journey at our Fun5z fundamentals programme then move onto either InstaNet or the full 7-a-side game.
  • Juniors (U17) and Seniors (17+) can access School, Club, District and College/University Competitions.
  • Over 18’s can access Bounce Back to Netball where the ethos is “rock up, get fit and have fun”.
  • We also have a Walking Netball programme, a slower version of the game adaptable across all ages and abilities.
  • For those who love the game and want to be more involved, we have coaching, umpiring, officiating, and volunteering opportunities and courses available.
  • And of course, the pinnacle, wearing that Thistle dress and playing for Scotland achieved through our performance pathways.
