Netball Club

Hi does anybody now how much it will cost to join the netball club? Do you have to buy extra kit or do you get that included in the fees?
Thanks
Vicky

there's an e-mail address on there to contact them...and you might find another website if you look more thoroughly than me :smile:

For the uni club you'll have to try out to see if you make on of the teams before you can join (there's 5 teams and then usually a recreation squad too). Then you need AU insurance (think it was about £5-£8 but I can't get the price 'cause I bought it already) and either £60 for 1st-4th teams, £50 for the 5th team or £40 for the rec squad. There will be kit costs, but I don't know how much.

If you're not on a uni squad then you can compete for your hall in IMS. For that you just need an IMS shirt (think they're about £20) and if there's a lot of people wanting to play for your hall you might have to go through try-outs, or swap in instead of playing whole games.

There are also local Loughborough clubs, but netball's not my thing so don't know much about them.

The leisure centre is one place to look for local clubs. I've seen a squash and badminton club advertising on the noticeboards and I have seen people playing netball in the sports hall there but I don't know if it was a proper match or just some people having a game for fun.

There's local clubs everywhere! My housemate plays Rugby for East Leake, and i know of someone who plays football for some other village/town in the area, so you're only limited by how far you want to travel really, and how badly you want to play.
