Are You Ready For The Netball World Cup?

Anyone with a keen interest Redhill netball classes will no doubt want to put the date of the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 firmly in the diary, taking place this year between July 12th and 21st.

It’s being held at the ACC Liverpool and the M&S Bank Arena, and it really does promise to be ten fun-filled days of some serious netballing… so fans of the game are sure to have a wonderful time if they get themselves some tickets.

In all, 60 matches will be played over the ten days, but don’t worry if you can’t make it – Sky Sports and the BBC have both been confirmed as broadcast partners, so you’ll be able to catch all the action on a small screen near you soon.

There are 16 teams making their way to Liverpool to compete, selected through the International Netball Federation world rankings and regional qualifying tournaments. England qualified automatically as host nation of the tournament, along with the top five ranked teams – Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, South Africa and Malawi.

The remaining ten teams contesting the World Cup are Northern Ireland, Scotland, Fiji, Samoa, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Sri Lanka and Singapore.

Most of the tickets for the Stage One preliminaries have now sold out, but there are still plenty available for Stage Two. And there are still tickets available for the play-offs on July 19th, but you may have to be quick about getting your hands on some if you’re keen to watch professional netball this summer.

Top Tips To Improve Your Hand-Eye Coordination

If you’ve recently taken up Redhill netball lessons, you might be discovering that your hand-eye coordination could use some work. Even if you haven’t got back to the netball court yet, there are still many good reasons to improve your coordination.

In an article for the Guardian, England Netball coach Alexandra Boulton shared a few exercises you can do to help improve your hand-eye coordination.

First up is to simply juggle a ball. Start by holding a netball in front of your face, use just your fingertips to pass it between your hands, which should be roughly shoulder-width apart. Then try to raise the ball over your head and bring it all the way down to your hips while still passing the ball between your hands.

If you want to practice some of your basic netball passes while improving your coordination, Ms Boulton recommends throwing your ball against the wall, using different passes such as chest, shoulder and overhead. Each time you catch the rebound, take a step back and see how far away from the wall you can get before the ball drops.

Another good way to train is to mark a target on a wall with chalk. You should aim to hit the target ten times in a row. Mix it up by drawing the target at different heights and by moving yourself further from the wall. Make sure you try it with different types of passes too.

England Netball recently revealed that 130,700 people have been inspired to head back to the netball court as a result of the England women’s performance in recent years. If you’re falling in love with netball all over again, make sure you’ve got time to try some of those drills at home.

Did England’s Netball Gold Medal Inspire You?

If you’ve recently started going to Putney netball lessons, were you inspired to get back on the court by the performance of the English netball team at the Commonwealth Games last year?

If you were, you certainly aren’t alone in having been encouraged to get involved with netball due to the success of the Vitality Roses. New research from England Netball has revealed that more than 130,700 people were inspired to play netball after the women won Gold for England.

What’s more, 80 per cent of those who engaged with the sport as part of the Back to Netball campaign following the Commonwealth Games victory were new to the activity.

There was also a 106 per cent increase in participation in walking netball between April 2018-2019, compared to the previous 12 months.

Chief executive at England Netball Joanna Adams commented: “It is fantastic to see that more women than ever before are playing netball each week because we know it can make such a positive difference to people’s lives.”

She added that she “can’t wait” to see how netball’s popularity may surge further when the UK hosts the Vitality Netball World Cup later this year.

It’s important to encourage people of all ages to take part in sports, and 77 per cent of those surveyed by the organisation believe the England Netball team are an inspiration to young girls.

Encouraging more girls to get involved in sports like netball is important, not only for their physical health but also to help improve their life skills. New research recently revealed that children who take part in sport are not only more likely to have good life skills, but are also more likely to feel empowered, have high self esteem and be good leaders.

Study Shows Link Between Sports And Child Development

Children who actively participate in sport are more likely to have good life skills, as well have high self-esteem, feel empowered and be well-equipped leaders, according to findings of a recent study.

UNICEF joined up with the Barca Foundation to study the link between exercise and child development, looking at data from more than 300 sport for development (S4D) programmes in 100 countries worldwide.

The Getting into the Game: Understanding the Evidence for Child-Focused Sport for Development report found sport contributes significantly to a youngster’s future prospects.

UNICEF’s deputy executive director Charlotte Petri Gornitzka said: “It’s long been understood that sport promotes children’s health and physical development, but now we have solid evidence to suggest that sport can have a powerful impact on their overall education and life skills development.”

She went on to say this evidence must be used to “inspire investment in sports for children”.

The report also found that for S4D initiatives to be successful, there needs to be co-operation from several sectors, including education and social services.

It also revealed that coaches play a crucial role at encouraging, protecting and motivating children.

Netball is one great sport that builds confidence in children; encourages them to work as a team; boosts hand-eye co-ordination and footwork; and, most importantly, enables them to have fun with their friends. Netball coaching courses are also valuable for teaching youngsters about commitment and practising new skills.

The UNICEF findings concluded that while the greatest barriers to sport among children in Africa was poverty, it was more likely to be physical and learning disabilities in Europe and Central Asia.

S4D names structural inequality and inaccessible sites as some of its biggest challenges to social inclusion for all children.

2,000 Children Take Part In Greater Manchester School Games

Thousands of schoolchildren are showcasing their enthusiasm for sport by taking part in the Greater Manchester School Games.

More than 2,000 youngsters from the region took part in the event earlier this week, demonstrating their talents in 12 different sports, Manchester Evening News reported.

They got involved in 22 competitions as part of the games, which were held in venues such as the East Manchester Leisure Centre, Eastlands Indoor Track, the Armitage Centre, and the Belle Vue Leisure Centre.

Sara Tomkins, chief executive officer at GreaterSport, the charity that is in charge of running the games, told the news provider: “The event has showcased the strong values that our young people hold.”

She went on to say the youngsters also demonstrated important school games values, such as “passion, honesty, respect, teamwork, determination and self-belief”.

Children of all ages engaged in the activities, including those as young as six years old.

The event was the finale of the School Games, which has involved 80,123 children from the region over the academic year.

GreaterSport’s intention is to improve the physical activity of youngsters across Greater Manchester and make it the most active area of the country.

This comes after the minister for sport Mims Davies promised to increase female participation in sport, with the national average figure being just 26.4 per cent. According to GreaterSport, female participation in Greater Manchester is slightly higher at 28.6 per cent.

To encourage your daughters to get involved in a physical activity they are sure to love, why not enrol them in girls’ netball classes in Cheshire?

U15 Sisters n Sport Netball National Cup Final
Solihull School (Midlands) v St Swithun’s (South West)

U15 SnS National Champions – Solihull School
MVP – Izzy Gardner – Solihull School

Our opening match of the Sisters n Sport Netball National Cup Finals and it didn’t disappoint!  Both teams were off to a great start, a few nerves on court but we were goal for goal in the first quarter – both teams showing strong defence and great shooting stats.  End of the first quarter and only two goals separated the teams.  This continued in the second quarter with end of end action.  Both teams holding strong and taking their opportunites – end of the half and still only two goals in it – 20-18 to Solihull School.

The third quarter was the turning point – Solihull School came out firing and St Swithun’s were not able to respond – end of the third quarter and Solihull School had strengthened their lead to 10 goals – putting them in the driving seat for the final quarter.  The last 15 were a close encounter like the first half – St Swithun’s responded well but just conuld not break into the lead Solihull had developed in the third quatter – only one goal separated them in that final quarter but the the third quarter had been vital and Solihull School were crowned Champtions – winning 42-31.

Great performances from all players, with GA Izzy Gardner from Solihull School being awarded MVP by Manchester Thunder’s Laura Malcolm.

U16 Sisters n Sport Netball National Final
Loughborough High School v Godolphin & Latymer

U16 SnS National Champions – Godolphin & Latymer School
MVP – Jessica Mayer – Godolphin & Latymer School

These teams had faced each other once before this season with Loughborough High School being the winners that day and so we knew this was going to be a close and well fought final.  Loughborough HS proved to be very fast out of the blocks – taking early leads in each quarter.  The first quarters they took a 3 goals lead but in the final moments – Godolphin & Latymer School made a comeback to bring the score to 12-11 Loughborough HS lead.  Again Loughborough hit t he ground running in the 2nd quarter taking a 5 goal lead – with some super shooting and patient court play – before G&L took some important turnovers pulling the score back to 22-21 to Loughborough a t the end of the half – this was a nail biting half and the second half did not have any less excitement.

Loughborough HS took the lead again, but an injury in the third moved the C from G&L to WD and the turnovers kept coming.  G&L ended the quarter up b2 (34-36).  There was everything to play for in the final quarter and there was a nervous start from both teams – but the shooters were still putting the goals away.  It looked like Loughborough would take the win leading with a  few minutes to play – but then came the G&L surge!  With 25 seconds to go it was a G&L centre at 48-48 – no pressure for their shooters – taking the lead with 15 seconds to go and a Loughborough HS centre.  LHS got the ball to their GS but it didn’t drop and G&L were the champions!  What a final!!!

Strong performances from all players, with WD Jessica Mayer from Godolphin & Latymer School being awarded MVP by Manchester Thunder’s Laura Malcolm.

Seniors Sisters n Sport Netball National Final
Bromsgrove School v Royal Russell School

Seniors SnS National Champions – Bromsgrove School
MVP  –  Ellie Preese – Bromsgrove School

The Seniors final was all set to be a showstopper from when the two coaches of supporters arrived – we have horns, banners and singing for both teams – the atmosphere was electric!  Royal Russell were the first to strike with speed on the attack and accurate shooting.   Bromsgrove were struggling to get past a very strong defensive unit.  At the end of the first quarter RR had taken a 5 goal lead – 13-8.  Bromsgrove made some changes in the shooting circle and centre court – they came out firing and took control of the game.  Royal Russell finished the half with a narrow one goal lead – 21-20.

The third quarter began and the crowd were bouncing!  They were lifting their players and spurring them on.  Bromsgrove began strong again – but every ball was fought for and there was no let up from either team.  The quarter was going goal for goal and then Bromsgrove gained the momentum and took a 7 goal lead at the end of the third.  Royal Russell began a strong fight back in the final quarter winning the quarter but Bromsgrove held on enough to take the win and become champions – 41-38.

Great performances from all players, with WD Ellie Preese from Bromsgrove being awarded MVP by Manchester Thunder’s Laura Malcolm.

U11 Sisters n Sport Netball National Cup Final
The Grange School v Putney High School

U11 SnS National Champions – The Grange School
MVP  – Ivana Igoe – The Grange School

First up we had The Grange School, Northwich facing Putney High School.  Both teams were so excited for the final as it was the first time they had competed in a National Cup competition.  The match started and went goal for goal for the full first ten minutes – there were flying interceptions and the shooters were shooting long bombs – fantastic netball from just young players!  At the end of the first quarter nothing could separate the teams – 6-6.  The Grange turned up their defensive game in the second quarter – their full court defence managed to create lots of turnovers and Putney struggled to get the ball the their shooters.  The Grange created a 5 goal lead to take into the second half.

A close third quarter followed with great attacking moves from both teams.  Only one goal separated the teams in this quarter but the lead from the first half put The Grange in the driving seat for the final quarter.  Putney came out strong and started putting the goals on the board – The Grange had to work hard to score off their centre passes and the nerves were starting to show a little.  In the end there was not enough time for a Putney comeback but the girls fought until the very end – with The Grange taking the win and becoming U11 Sisters n Sport National Cup Champions 24-21.

Huge performances from such young players, with GD Ivana Igoe from The Grange being awarded MVP by Loughborough Lightning’s Jess Shaw.

U12 Sisters n Sport Netball National Cup Final
Cheadle Hulme School v Redmaids’ High School

U12 SnS National Champions – Cheadle Hulme School
MVP  – Tiger Barlow –Cheadle Hulme School

For the second final of the day we had North v South West.  The Cheadle Hulme School had brought a coach load of pupils and so they were well supported for their final – banners and flags filled the sports hall.  Cheadle Hulme were strong from the offset – straight to goal from their centre pass and the shooters doing their job to put the goals on the board.  Redmaids fought for each ball and were strong on their own centre pass but a few turnovers from Cheadle Hulme School put them 13-4 up at the end of the first quarter.  Cheadle Hulme did not slow down in the second quarter – fast movement and relentless defence.  Redmaids contested each ball – but Cheadle Hulme were too strong and they extended their lead to 29-7.

In the third quarter Cheadle Hulme kept the momentum, scoring quickly from their centre passes and successful in turnover ball. The shooters rewarded the defences efforts with high shooting percentages, making it diffcult for Redmaids defence to turn ball over or capitalise on rebound opportunities. Redmaids had some impressive moments and intercepts but they could not convert and Cheadle Hulme pushed on with the quarter ending 41-8.

Redmaids continued to work hard in the final quarter and had some lovely passages of play through court but found it hard to get the ball to their shooters due to the Cheadle Hulme GK applying a lot of pressure from the back. Cheadle Hulme were outstanding from start to finish but the score did not reflect how well Redmaids performed throughout the game. The game ended Cheadle Hulme 55 – Redmaids 10.

Strong attacking and defensive performances from both teams with GS Tiger Barlow from Cheadle Hulme School being awarded MVP by Loughborough Lightning’s Jess Shaw.

U13 Sisters n Sport Netball National Final
Cheadle Hulme School v Berkhamsted School

U13 SnS National Champions – Cheadle Hulme School
MVP  – Maisie Chrimes – Cheadle Hulme School

For the third final of the day we had Cheadle Hulme going for the double – the crowd still cheering!   This time they were up against the South East Regional Champions – Berkhamsted School.  Both teams didn’t blink in the first quarter – goal for goal for the full 12 mins with Berkhamsted taking a slim lead of one goal at the end of the quarter.  Following their team talk Cheadle Hulme scored 4 goals from the whistle and took the lead, their court play was relentless for the quarter and Berkhamsted took time to settle and respond.  At the end of the half and Cheadle Hulme had a lead of 9 – 24-15.

The third quarter was much closer – both teams contesting for every ball, shots defended fiercely and any rebounds hotly contested.  The quarter score was 7-5 to Cheadle Hulme which meant they had extended their lead to 11 with 12 mins left to play – 31-20.   The final quarter continued to be a well fought contest bur Cheadle Hulme’s lead was too much for Berkhamsted to break down and Cheadle Hulme were crowned Champions with a 39-25 win.

Great performance from all players on court, with GA Maisie Chrimes from Cheadle Hulme School being awarded MVP by Loughborough Lightning’s Jess Shaw.

U14 Sisters n Sport Netball National Final
Wirral Grammar School for Girls v Berkhamsted School

U14 SnS National Champions – Wirral Grammar School for Girls
MVP  – Lucy Clayton – Wirral Grammar School for Girls

The final match of the Sisters n Sport National Cup Finals and it was North v South East again.  Berkhamsted fielded their second team of the finals and they would face the Northern Regional Champions – Wirral Grammar School for Girls.  Would Wirral Grammar for Girls make it a clean sweep for the Northern teams or would Berkhamsted put a win on the board for the South East?

A close start for both teams – goal for goal – both teams shooting well and taking the ball to goal.  Wirral took the first break and then gained a flow making the most of their momentum – with left the score at 17-8 at the end of the first quarter.  Wirral Grammar continued to dominate in the second quarter but Berkhamsted stayed strong on their own centre passes and put pressure on them throughout the quarter.  Strong performances in defence for Wirral Grammar helped to increase their lead.

The third quarter was tightly contested – lots of turnovers and increased defensive pressure meant this was a close and low scoring quarter – both circle defence made it difficult to get the ball to the shooters.  With just 12 mins to play – each ball was contested and nothing was given away.  Wirral Grammar for Girls were in the driving seat and they were on track for the win – continued turnovers from the circle defence and flowing court play to the accurate shooters ensured the win – 50-28.

Great team performances from both teams, with GK Lucy Clayton from Wirral Grammar School for Girls being awarded MVP by Loughborough Lightning’s Jess Shaw.

How Will Netball’s Ties With Rugby Boost The Sport?

There’s no denying that the netball Superleague has been a huge success this year. Many of the teams competing have emerged thanks to tie ups with existing sports clubs, mainly in rugby.

A recent article for Sky Sports suggested that this collaboration could be the key to netball’s continued success, and could even help it to draw in larger audiences and therefore grow in popularity.

Wasps, Mavericks and Leeds Rhinos are just some of the teams to have emerged in recent years as a result of rugby clubs getting involved in netball to promote the sport and put teams together that can compete at the highest levels.

At the beginning of this year, Saracens acquired a 50 per cent stake in Mavericks, with CEO Tim Hunt explaining in an interview with the news provider why they were attracted to the netball team.

“Specifically around Mavericks, the way in which their development pathways are set and the work they do in the community and the reach that they have into schools and clubs is very aligned to how we’ve had great success with Saracens,” he stated.

2019 is a big year for English netball, and the sport as a whole. But all eyes will be on the England team as they bid to take home the World Cup on home soil in July this year.

The women will be going into the competition among the favourites having taken home Commonwealth Gold last year.

With so much going on in netball this year, and the sport increasingly gaining attention in the media, it could be just the inspiration you need to sign up for Reigate netball lessons this year.

How To Improve Your Netball Skills This Year

We all know how much fun it is to play netball in Kingston and elsewhere around the UK – it’s a brilliant game that teaches you all about hand to eye coordination, being a team player, tactical thinking and a whole lot more… which is why so many people of all ilks love to head out onto the netball court again and again.

But what if you want to elevate your game this year and take it to the next level? No doubt there are countless of you out there who are perfectly happy just bouncing the ball around the court (no footwork, though!) and having fun on a social level… but if you’re keen to be the best you can be and perhaps even play professionally one day, you’ve got to focus and really work on those netball skills. Here are a few top tips that might help.

 

Communication is key

Never forget that netball is a team game and in order to be as successful as you can, you need to work on your communication skills. You’ve got to work with the other players on the team and keep on talking to them to boost not only your game but theirs as well.

 

Practice against a wall

If you’re struggling to get all your teammates together but know you need to practice, head outside and find yourself a convenient brick wall somewhere. Make a few marks on the wall and then spend some time trying to improve the accuracy of your throwing.

 

Time trials

Again, something you can do by yourself if you want to be able to zip around that court quicker than you do right now. Set up some markers about 20m apart and then time how long it takes you to sprint between the two. Do this regularly and watch as your personal best improves week after week.

 

Watch professional matches

A brilliant way to up your game is to head out to watch some professional matches so you can see how the game is played on a bigger stage. You’re sure to pick up a few new ideas and come away with lots of potential new skills to practice.

 

Prioritise decision-making drills

You’ve got to be able to think clearly and think quickly when on the netball court, so you can make better decisions – which will result in fewer intercepted passes and greater possession for your team.

 

Build your fitness

While you might be amazing at passing the ball and brilliant at shooting it into the net, if your fitness isn’t up to scratch you’ll find yourself getting left behind in the opposition’s dust. Hit the gym a bit more and build up your cardio so you can be the one dashing about, hard to catch, in your next netball match.
