England Netball, INF and UKSport empowering girls and getting ACTIVE with NETBALL in Zambia.
The International Netball Federation (INF), and NWC2019 organisers continue the development of the sport globally, prompting the launch of the legacy netball project; NET2019.
Funded by UK Sport, and delivered by England Netball in partnership with the INF, NET2019 aims to provide coaching advice and facilitated netball sessions to empower women and girls through the power of netball around the world.
In particular, the scheme will place an emphasis on two key territories, Africa and South America – continents where netball is rapidly gaining influence. Predominantly NET2019 will focus its work in Zambia and Argentina. Here it will work with each of the country’s netball associations to develop the provision of netball at grassroots levels, whilst also supporting the development of talent and high performance programmes, which have been proven to raise the profile of the sport within their communities.

International – we’re currently working to get NETBALLMoJo translated (into Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili etc.) and digitised. Keen to work with UK NGBs and International Federations to help get the ‘Empowerment through Sport’ message across. Digital editions can be distributed virtually free (e.g. 50 Rupees) and delivered directly, circumventing local (often misogynistic) prejudices – we believe that gives WSNet a unique momentum that can really change the lives of girls in both western and 'third world' countries. If you can help please email email@example.com with your interest.
