More about us

Yeovil Netball Club competes in the Somerset County Netball League over the Winter season. We currently have 7 teams: Babylon, Newton and Wyndham, Hendford, Reckleford, Aldon and finally Summerhouse. We also run Back2Netball sessions and a number of Junior teams covering U12, U13, U14 and U16.

Cost

There is a cost involved in playing netball covering training fees, match fees, and affiliation and insurance cover from England Netball plus registration with the Somerset County Netball Association. Please see our forms page to find out more!

Training

Training times are 5.45pm-6.50pm for Juniors (U12, U13, U14) and 7.10pm-9pm for Seniors (including U16’s) on a Wednesday evening from September to April at Westfield School, Yeovil.

Also, Back to Netball training takes place on Tuesday nights and run for 8-10 weeks at a time.

Training consists of a challenging but fun mix of skills and drills where elements of the game are broken down, and skills are built up for the game situation. Teams then practise in readiness for the match the following Saturday. Training is delivered and overseen by a team of appropriately qualified and CRB checked Coaches and always includes a warm-up and cool-down.

Seniors Matches

Seniors Matches are played on Saturdays (and in some rare cases in the evenings) and consist of 4 quarters of 15 minutes. The Club operates a squad system and team selection is made by the Head Coach, and each team is managed by a Team Captain. There is a match fee per player per game and refreshments are usually provided by the team playing at the home venue.

Match Kit

Yeovil Netball Club players play in Kukri green dresses with black side panels and white piping. All players must wear this when playing. Orders for dresses are made centrally. In cold weather it is permitted to wear an appropriate top (long or short sleeve) under a dress but permission to wear tracksuit trousers or running leggings in cold weather is given by the match umpires only.
