Keen to Play competitive Winter Netball in 2017?

Winter Competition

Did you play netball while at school and want to get back into it? Perhaps you are new to Wellington? Maybe keen to try a new sport? Or are you just looking for a great chance to make new friends, socialise with your team mates or get fit in New Zealand’s biggest female participation sport?

Netball Wellington Centre is one of five netball centres located within the Greater Wellington region.  Each Centre organises their own Club, Collegiate and/or Primary competitions, programmes and events to support player, coach, manager, umpire and bench official's participation in their own areas.  If not based within Wellington City you can access the links to the other four netball centres near the bottom of this page.

Netball Wellington Centre provides a variety of junior, social, development representative and competitive netball opportunities and is responsible for organising the Saturday Winter Competition for college age upwards within the Wellington City area. Our competition caters for the most social of teams through to the Premier Competition which links in to competitions run within the wider Wellington region such as Regional Super League (RSL) and Regional Secondary Schools League (RSSL).

Around 250 teams from about 13 clubs, and 9 colleges and a number of independent teams play on Saturdays during the winter months.  Competitions are run across two venues - all Premier, Premier Reserve, Senior and Collegiate grades 1-3 play indoors at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie while the Collegiate grades 4-8 play outdoors at the Hataitai Netball Courts. The season runs from end of March/early April through until end of August and depending on which club you choose to approach trials and registrations may get underway from mid-February onwards so check out the club websites/facebook links listed below and contact a club so you can get yourself registered to play for 2017. 

Bear in mind that unlike other sports, clubs in Wellington do not operate on a geographical basis or have clubrooms attached therefore it does not matter where you are living within Wellington - anyone is free to join any club they choose so long as they can travel to attend trainings & games.  These are commonly held either indoors at the ASB Sports Centre, 72 Kemp Street, Kilbirnie or outdoors at the Hataitai Netball Courts, 43 Ruahine Street, Hataitai however some clubs use alternative venues.  This may be a deciding factor so be sure to check training/game locations upon enquiring about trials.
