Netball NI New Season

Netball NI is delighted to release the fixtures for our new domestic season commencing in October. With a new format being trialled in our top 4 leagues and new teams entering our area competitions we are excited to see how the season unfolds.

Friday night netball once again returns to Lisburn Racquets Club with 5 matches from our amalgamated Premier and Division 1 leagues beginning on 13th October. With former Premier league champions Graduates taking some time away from competitive netball, current champions Lisburn club, Larkfield will face increased competition from rivals Belfast Ladies and Kingsway who have welcomed some former Graduates players to their squads. With these 3 clubs home to many of our National athletes vying for places in our Commonwealth Games squad it will be great to see them pushing each other on court week in and week out right to the end of the season. Added to the mix will be a representative team from ROI, Shamrocks who will add a different style of place to this league, it’s going to be an exciting one!

Netball NI Active Clubs Officer, Lisa Rickett is impressed by the former social groups taking up the challenge of competitive netball, 'we work alongside a number of social netball groups through the 'Active Clubs' programme so it is rewarding and exciting to see these groups take the next step moving from friendly, recreational netball to entering our domestic competition events.'

Good luck to every team competing this season, we'll be following your progress each week and detailing match results on our website
