Netball

Netball at Blundell’s is enthusiastically played by all girls, recreationally and competitively.

Netball at Blundell’s is enthusiastically played by all girls, recreationally and competitively. Those who strive to play at the highest level train regularly within school in combination with any external elite commitments. Fielding five senior and twelve junior teams in the Spring Term, Blundell’s also enters all National Schools’ Tournaments in the Autumn Term.

Our coaching staff are committed to providing high quality coaching to all pupils who play netball. A number of external professional coaches join the coaching team, some from Team Bath, in the Spring Term in order to ensure that groups are small and development of all players can be maximised. The girls train regularly improving both their skills and fitness for the game. Individual time is also made for those most experienced players who wish to take their skills to the next level.

In the Spring Term Blundell’s plays on a very competitive circuit with weekly block fixtures against both local schools and some who are further afield. We have been extremely successful in recent years, especially at senior level. Block fixtures try to accommodate as many girls as possible who wish to play competitively and consequently a Saturday is busy with back to back fixtures throughout the afternoon.

Girls’ Netball at Blundell’s has steadily grown in strength since the school became fully coeducational in the 1992. A number of girls train and play representative and competitive netball outside school and most recently Megan Hamilton-Strong has been selected for the Team Bath U18 Squad. Many senior players leave Blundell’s having developed the skills to continue playing netball at university at the highest level. We were thrilled to hear that OB Ellie Ansell received her Blue for Netball at Cambridge University.
