This is Netball fund launched

The Vitality Netball World Cup is about 'Empowering women and girls' and Yorkshire Netball is proud to launch our 'This is Netball' fund to support the women and girls of our region to become involved in Netball.

As a region we are committed to providing more opportunities for people to play Netball. We want everyone in Yorkshire and Humberside, regardless of age, background or level of ability, to feel able to get involved in Netball whether that is playing, officiating or volunteering! We want more Netball opportunities that welcome everyone, meets their needs, treats and values them as individuals.

To support the development and growth of Netball we are looking to invest into projects involving both adults and young people. We are particularly keen to support projects aimed at those who are less likely to play such as people from low socio-economic groups and those with a disability.

We are providing grants for individuals up to £500 and grants for Clubs, Community Groups or Organisations up to £1,000.

This is an open application process. Once we have received your application, we aim to provide a decision on within 4 weeks.

We are seeking applications from across Yorkshire and Humberside that will:

  • Inspire and empower women and girls in our region
  • Provide opportunities for people who have never played Netball to have a go
  • Develop more diverse volunteers
  • Improve progression and inclusion among the most talented
  • Improve the areas in which people play Netball

So, if your club needs some new equipment, your venue needs new posts, you want expand your current offer, bring Netball to your community, need support to help you participate in Netball or just have a great idea to get more people involved then we want to hear from you!
