16-19 Netball Open competition

Dear Netballer,
England Netball is delighted to launch a brand new competition specifically for 16-19 year olds, called the 16-19 Netball Open.

Entries are currently open for this exciting new 2 day competition and for further details about the competition and to enter a team, please visit http://www.englandnetball.co.uk/competitions/2014-15/16-19-netball-open_101

Below is some key information about the competition:

  • An exciting new tournament has been added to the netball calendar this summer as England Netball host our inaugural 16-19 Netball Open.
  • This is a competition, specifically for 16-19 year olds which will take place over two days (accommodation is not provided within the entry fee) and is open to any affiliated member of England Netball.
  • You can play within your existing Club or even form a team specifically for this event (please note all individuals will need to be affiliated members but not necessarily to the same club). Groups of individuals from the same affiliated Schools*, Colleges* and Universities* can also enter a team.
  • The playing schedule will be determined once entries close, but it is likely to be split into a cup and plate competition based on ability. The competition will be played outdoors.
  • This year the tournament takes place at the Redbridge Sports Centre in Essex over the weekend of the 4th and 5th of July. Entry is now open to enter a team and closes on Friday 5th June.
  • To be eligible all players must be between the ages of 16 and 19 years old, as of midnight on 31st August / 1st September 2014. Squads must contain a minimum of seven and maximum of 12 players.
  • Each team must have an over 19 year old, non-playing adult assigned as responsible for the team welfare at the competition.
