IF you’ve ever fancied giving netball a go, or perhaps are wanting to get back into the sport, one successful Times Territory club could be your first port of call.

The 2011/2012 season has been an impressive one for Hatfield Netball Club and shown that it really is a ‘club for all’.

With membership approaching 200, the club is able to offer opportunities for players who enjoy the team sport as well as those who wish to develop their skills to the highest possible level.

The club trains players from Year 4 onwards. At the junior level the club jointly runs the Verulamium league at St Albans for players in Years 7-9.

The club’s Year 9 A and B teams did very well in the 2011/2012 season.

In the past season Hatfield Netball Club had six teams in the Welwyn Hatfield Netball League played at Stanborough School, for players aged 14 up to adults.

Several of these teams improved on previous season’s performance and three teams progressed to a higher division for the 2012/2013 season.

The top two senior teams had exceptional years.

The Magpies won the Herts County League Second Division and will now progress to the First Division.

The Hawks were successful in progressing to the Netball East Regional Club League Second Division, after competing in play-offs in June.

The club also offer Back to Netball sessions for players that are new to the game or haven’t played for a while.

More is being offered in the region for this level of player and over the past season players have had their own league, where six teams were involved. This also provides a great opportunity for umpires to get experience.

Hatfield Netball Club are very proud of their achievements this year and are always interested in hearing from netball enthusiasts of any age who wish to join as a player, umpire or coach.
