About Challengers Netball Club

About Us

We are a Tewkesbury based netball club that currently has 6 teams competing both regionally and within the Gloucestershire Netball League.

We also offer the younger players the opportunity to progress from High 5 netball, through to the U12, U13, U14 & U16 and divisional Gloucestershire Leagues. They are also taking part in the newly formed Cotswold Junior League on a Sunday once a month.

We train indoors at Wycliffe and Bentham Country Club on 2 courts on a Tuesday and Thursday night, and have a wealth of experienced coaches to motivate and discipline us.

Our coaches, officials and volunteers are encouraged to work to high standards and adopt recognised best practice.  They follow safety guidelines and good ethical conduct. We are always looking for new players so why don’t you come along and join in one of our training sessions and see how you like it. Its a great way to keep fit and meet new friends!

Our social events are varied, and as well as going on tour to Pontins some years, we regularly have dinners out or get together’s. I think we even went to go ape a few years ago! In 2010, we did a massive car boot sale, to raise money for the new kit!  It was a great day, scorching hot, and as a result some of the cakes we made melted.  It was a fantastic success and we raised over £300.

As usual we have a number of weddings this year, and almost certainly we will have some pregnancies too.  We just can’t wait for all the girls to be old enough to play. That said, we already have a couple of mother and daughters playing together in the club, and would love to have more.

We participated in the local “Count me In” Festival on the May bank holiday in 2010,  raising awareness of the sport, with a view to recruiting new players. It was incredibly successful! We held a shooting competition and awarded prices to those who showed outstanding talent!

We Always look forward to the end of season “bash” which is always a great event, especially if we have something to celebrate! Last season there was PLENTY to celebrate, with 3 teams gaining promotion.

All in all we are a friendly club, that always welcomes new players.
