Where to start?


 This information is designed to help you if:
- You are leaving school and want to keep playing netball;
- You are shifting to Wellington and want to find a club;
- You are returning to netball after a break;
- You are wanting to get into coaching a club team.

We have a number of playing options available for serious premier and representative players to the more social player.

Our Premier 1 competition comprising our top College and Club teams feeds up into the ANZ Championship teams, National League and representative teams. 

Our senior grades are more focused on the social player.

If you are keen to play winter netball….

…. And you want to play at a competitive level in Wellington you need to look for a club which has Premier level teams.  It is good to trial at a club which has a range of teams within each grade so that you get a feel for where you belong and slot in correctly for your skill level. Within the Netball Wellington Centre competition we have a number grades ranging from Premier 1 (top), Premier 2, Premier 3, Premier Reserve 1 down to Premier Reserve 4 followed by Senior 1 to Senior 7.  Check out the club websites or facebook pages listed below.  We suggest you contact the club and don’t be afraid to ask questions about coaches, trainings, fitness opportunities and club activities on offer etc. It is important to find a club where you will feel comfortable and can play at the level that will help you develop your play. If you are attending college it is recommended to play for your own college team in the first instance.  Dispensation must be sought from your college if wishing to play for a club - a Dispensation Form can be downloaded from our website or email games@netballwellington.co.nz to request.  College teams play within our Premier to Premier Reserve grades and then filter through into our Collegiate 1A to 5B grades followed by our Junior Collegiate 1A to 2C grades.

And you want to play for fun and exercise you should look for a club which offers teams in senior grades and please remember that when you are joining a club you are making a commitment to be part of a team for the whole season. Contact the club and don’t be afraid to ask questions about grades, trainings and club activities etc. The club may require you to attend trials. Don’t be put off as it is a good way to get a feel for how the club operates and to work out if it is what you are looking for not to mention meet new people. If you want to play in a more social grade make it clear from the start so that the club can place you in the right team. It is important to find a club where you will feel comfortable and where you can play at the level which you will enjoy participating.

And you want to play with a group of friends you could approach a club and ask to enter a team under their umbrella. You will have to pay their fees and will be subject to any rules they have in place. We do have “member teams” which are teams playing as single team clubs. If you want to set this up you need to talk to us. The cost is stated in our NWC Rules (PDF can be accessed here) and involves a one-off affiliation fee as well as an annual registration fee per team for the season.  Fees cover a maximum of 12 players however additional players can be registered for an additional fee otherwise you can register and deregister players to maintain no more than 12 players with clever team management. Remember you will also need to decide upon a playing uniform, purchase and order them in time for the start of the season (if necessary) and ensure it is registered with our Centre. Please check with Netball Wellington Centre before ordering as uniform registrations need to be approved by the Centre. Uniform Registration forms can be downloaded from our website or email games@netballwellington.co.nz

If you are new to Wellington….check out the club websites or facebook pages below or contact clubs directly to find out about trial dates and gain a feel for what each club has to offer.  Check out the above information as it all applies to all new players.

If you are a current representative player transferring from another region... please contact us directly so that we can add you to our Talent ID player database and keep you in touch with player development opportunities and representative trial dates for your age group.  Get in touch by email to our Netball Development Officer -  ndo@netballwellington.co.nz

If you are a male keen to continue playing... we'd be keen to hear from you as we started our first Men's League in 2015 which we are keen to continue in 2017.  If you email games@netballwellington.co.nz we shall add you to our mailing list.  There is also the opportunity to play mixed Twilight with games played on Wednesdays or Thursdays at the ASB Sports Centre throughout the year or at the Hataitai netball courts on Mondays in Terms 1 and 4.
