A Club for the Community

History of the Club

History

The opportunity for youth netball first started within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) at the Magnet Leisure Centre in the 1990's. This proved so popular that a second venue, Charters, assisted with the high demand for local netball sessions. Finally with the demand still increasing the RBWM introduced a third site at Windsor. For several years these clubs operated independently then in 2008 formed a combined netball club, where they achieved the SILVER Clubmark. In May 2013, due to the ever increasing demand and the expertise of the coaches the Magnet Netball Club decided to re-launch itself as an individual club. However this meant redefining and rebranding itself and starting at the bottom of the Clubmark recognition procedure.

Present Day

As we start 2014 the Magnet Netball Club (Known as Magnets) we are delighted that we have already achieved the BRONZE Clubmark Award on 27th November 2013 and are able to offer weekly netball sessions for players from Yr 2 (U7's) to Yr 9 (U14's). We also offer >Yr 10 opportunities to play in the Adult Netball League at Kidwells Park, Maidenhead. Along side the recreational aspect of the club we will run (where applicable) a competition squad. Magnets already have 2 junior competition squads in U11 and U12 competing this season in the Berkshire Junior League on Sundays and are delighted that a new competition club kit will be available mid February 2014. We will endeavour to remain a small club operating with one competition team max per year group from Yr 6, as well as providing opportunities for recreational players. We pride ourselves on having our emphasis on coaching, playing and improving personal skill levels whilst being in a friendly environment. All our coaches are dedicated people who want to allow any player of any standard the opportunity to play, learn and enjoy netball. Whilst at the same time identifying any potential players and guide them through the development programmes that are available through England Netball.
