UK Netball Festival 2024

Join us at Keele University in summer 2024 for our UK Festival of Netball. Working with our partners Elite Netball, we are delighted to be returning for more Netball fun in June 2024. 

This exciting weekend of Netball will include an exclusive Q&A with a netball professional. In 2023 our young netballers were treated to an evening with former England Netball captain and Commonwealth gold medal winner Serena Guthrie MBE who spoke about her  inspiring netball journey and prestigious sporting career.  Watch this space for news who will be joining us in 2024.
