Introduction

England Netball, the national governing body for Netball in England, is responsible for promoting netball as a way to have an active lifestyle. "Netball is classed as an England priority sport" (Lisa Wainright, Netball magazine, 2005, See appendix) Because of this, Sport England have put money into netball to initiate many new schemes to boost participation levels further. Sport England and England Netball have introduced High 5 netball into primary schools to develop key skills from an early age. It is a versatility setup with roles for timekeeping and scorer. The national squad have many sponsors, which allow for specialist coaches and facilities, (Full listings in appendix). In my local area "Newbury" there is one junior club (U11-U16). Funding comes from fees, paid by players. This money goes towards court hire and coach hire for transport to tournaments. Two years ago the U16's changed kit tops from jade to white, this was funded by sponsorship from a local Orthopaedic company, Forth Medical. So teams can find fund for themselves. As well as the junior teams, there are many adult teams who compete at three levels in a League. Teams often find sponsorship from bars, restaurants and other local businesses. Again however, fees are paid each months/ season for court hire for matches.

In Primary schools, children play High 5 netball, and at secondary school the full 7-a-side game both curricular and extra curricular. This year there is no county Netball, it is too expensive to run and it doesn't develop talent of those who just missed out on a place. The new set up is a 10-year development programme for committed athletes to improve standard. The levels are shown in the diagram, players work up the ladder and ultimately make a national squad. (For details of the criteria at each stage see appendix) England netball rules state that High 5 netball should b the only netball for primary schools; teams can be female, male and mixed. In secondary school boys can play netball, but only in curriculum time, and they must be under qualified teacher supervision. Ian Root used to coach the England Netball Men's National Squad. He was concerned with the development of men's netball. Although the men's team played internationally, the sport is very low profile. In Newbury there is a small opportunity in primary school High 5 tournaments. At Park House full course GCSE PE students do a 6-lesson netball session, this is mixed. But, from the age of 11 and up, there is no real opportunity for men to play netball. Girls can play competitively for primary and secondary school and then club from age 11 and upward, starting at Newbury Juniors then progressing to adult teams. ...read more.

Conclusion
