Just short of 1 million women and girls played netball at some point last year making netball the number one team sport played by females in England. In contrast to that only 448 deaf and disabled people took part in an England Netball session in 2017. However, in England, there are over 1.5 million deaf and disabled women and girls under the age of 50. These figures speak to the incredible opportunity we have at England Netball.

To support this we have developed a Para Netball Strategy. This strategy has been published following extensive research and development pulling on an evidence base from across all sport. It is an exciting glimpse into our future and signals the intent and ambition that we have at England Netball to understand, engage, maximise and empower deaf and disabled women and girls across England.

Netball is growing. We offer a diverse range of opportunities to play, train and develop and now we are excited to bring deaf and disabled women and girls into the Netball Family.

Core Inclusive Clubs

Core Inclusive Clubs are a network of clubs throughout England that have a focus on disability and inclusion. The CIC’s come in many shapes and sizes from traditional netball clubs through to exclusive impairment specific clubs. Two things that they all have in common is that they love Netball and secondly, they have a desire to bring deaf and disabled people into sport.
