General Manager, Pathways & Performance, Netball NSW

NETBALL NSW OVERVIEW

Netball NSW is a not-for-profit organisation and is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by professional staff. Netball NSW is the peak state sporting organisation responsible for the governance, development, promotion and administration of netball throughout New South Wales and is affiliated to Netball Australia.

Netball NSW provides the framework for over 115,000 registered members and over 150,000 in total participants to enjoy netball at all levels of performance throughout New South Wales. Our sport continues to grow both on and off the court and much of this success can be attributed to the wide range of programs, facilities and services Netball NSW offers to its members and participants – from the grassroots level through to the elite, professional level.

Netball NSW has a proud history of elite netball teams and athletes’ performances in national and international competition. Over 300 athletes have proudly represented NSW in elite competition since the inception of the national netball league in 1997 and then the ANZ Championship. 2017 saw the introduction of the Suncorp Super Netball, the top Australian domestic competition which includes two Netball NSW elite teams, the NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball.

GIANTS NETBALL

Suncorp Super Netball began a new chapter in Australian Netball history in 2017, and with it the introduction of GIANTS Netball.

Owned and operated by Netball NSW, in a strategic alliance with GWS GIANTS AFL, GIANTS Netball was formed on the basis of providing more opportunities for the 115,000 registered Members in NSW, including: to represent their State and club at Netball’s highest domestic level; and provide opportunities for fans and members to watch the world’s best netballers live in action.

NSW SWIFTS

Suncorp Super Netball began a new chapter in Australian Netball history in 2017, and coincided with the next generation of NSW Swifts, with the 2017 playing roster boasting some of international netball’s most promising players. The combined average age of the NSW Swifts playing group was just 23 years old; a far cry from some of the more experienced rosters they would be facing in the competition’s first year.

Owned and operated by Netball NSW, in a strategic alliance with Sydney Swans AFL, NSW Swifts was formed on the basis of providing more opportunities for the 115,000 registered Members in NSW, including: to represent their State and club at Netball’s highest domestic level; and provide opportunities for fans and members to watch the world’s best netballers live in action.

Both GIANTS Netball and NSW Swifts remain committed to being strong role models for young netballers around NSW, Australia and the world, and for representing their teams to the best of their ability. The clubs strive to be a competitive force in every year of the league and be a top 4 team each and every season and compete for the SSN title.
