Membership

INC 1

At Island Netball Club (INC), we aim to create a supportive, fun and safe environment for all players to participate in netball.  Island is a fun and friendly netball club made up of approximately thirty members, who have a passion for playing competitive netball.

Fees
Members pay an annual fee of subs which amounts to £240, which can be paid by monthly direct debit instalments of £20. For non-members there is a charge of £5 per training session. Your first session is free.

Members must also pay an affiliation fee. All participants that take part in ‘authorised and recognised’ netballing activity must be affiliated to ensure that full Liability and Personal Accident Insurance Cover for a participant is activated. The participant, whether player, coach, umpire or admin staff must ensure that they are affiliated with fees paid to England Netball. The annual affiliation fee covers activity from 1st September to 31st August. Click here to find out more information on what your affiliation fee covers.

Interested in becoming a member?
New players are always welcome to Island Netball Club! However, before applying please ensure that you are able to make a full commitment to the club. We expect all members to train each week and attend matches (every other Saturday) all season, from September through to April once you make a team. We do enter leagues in the summer but this tends to be more social and we try to concentrate on personal development so you can pick and choose when you play.

Kit
When playing matches for Island, you will also be expected to wear club colours and have the INC dress as a minimum kit requirement (other kit is available to order). Kit is available to be purchased from our shop online. Click here to see what’s available. Speak to our players rep Emma Passos if you have any questions.

About Us

Island Netball Club (INC) has been established since 2001 and provides the opportunity for women of all ages, fitness levels and racial backgrounds to practice the sport of Netball, both for recreational and competitive purposes within a structured and developmental environment. Our players come from a wide area including Catford, Dulwich, Canary Wharf and Essex. We train indoors at George Green school every Monday from 7-9pm.

We are affiliated to The All England Netball Association and the club currently has three teams within the Essex Met leagues. Island Netball Club has three squads that are trained on a weekly basis. Trials are held in August over a number of dates, with pre-season training during the summer.

The club also provides information and training on local umpiring and coaching courses for members who wish to develop these skills and become qualified.

As well as our netball successes many firm friendships have been made and we regularly organise socials so the squad can get together in other environments. In the past we have been bowling, to the theatre, ice skating, karaoke, clubbing and out to dinner.

What are we looking for in a player?

-The first team are looking for talented players who have experience playing at a very high competitive level of netball.
-The second and third team are looking for players who have a good level of playing ability.
