 Thriving Netball League is fun and friendly


 Stamford Netball league
Participants at a back to netball session.

Stamford Netball League, which began back in 1979, has since gone from strength and now has over 200 members who regularly participate at the courts at Blackstones.

"The netball league is a great way for women. young and old, to get together. We range in age from 13 to 65. There are a few of us who have been around since the start. It is very family friendly."
JANE CONNEELY
It was formed by Linda Bryan who can still be found on a court on a Tuesday night. Linda’s family have continued the tradition and her oldest, Louise, is a member of the committee.

Current chairlady of the league is Jane Conneely who is an active figure at their sessions on a Monday and Tuesday night.

The League is played on a Tuesday with 20 teams competing across the three leagues (
results from the summer league). The league  also run Back to Netball sessions which take place on a Monday night and are open to anyone looking to get back into the game or try a new sport.

“It is also good for ladies new to the area to meet new people. We try and make it fun and friendly while helping you to keep fit,” explained Jane.
