History and Training
Netball was a successful and popular addition to the Club from October 2011. It is open to girls and boys from the age of 7 to 17 years old. Our priority is to provide training of the basic physical skills and an understanding of the playing rules relevant to the game. The training is split into age groups based on the players age as at the previous 31st August.
Netball training will be held on Friday’s starting at 08:00 at 7he Sevens from 22nd September. Come and meet the coaches at our open day on Friday 7th September. See Join Our Club for details of how and when to register.

Aims for the 2018/19 season
- To expand our age groups.
- To have a representative team at the Dubai Netball Sevens.
- To have regular competitive play for all our age groups
- To build links with the UAE rugby clubs and offer netball fixtures alongside the rugby.
The aim for the future
To continue to grow and develop our netball section and to gain enough support / additional coaches to allow us to split the training groups further, so that we can develop the players to their differing capabilities.
If you are interested in volunteering to be an Assistant Coach for the netball training on a voluntary basis, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Also this year we are working with other regional academies to arrange mini tournaments and competitive games throughout the season. We have entered a team into the Dubai Rugby 7’s Netball competition as well as the Dubai Netball League.
