Netball is played as a club in the autumn and spring term and all girls are invited to attend and play. With more girls playing the sport, Sherborne Girls’ strength in this sport is improving.
Teams for the county and regional tournaments are selected from girls who choose to attend in the first term and exceptional players are put forward to satellite and country trials each year.
The U16 team recently won the North Dorset County Netball Tournament and a number of Sherborne Girls were accepted into the Somerset satellite and the Somerset county squad, and others have played at regional level before moving on to play for senior teams.
We also maintain good links with Yeovil Netball Club, which plays in the Oxley Sports Centre, and several of our girls train and play with their junior and senior teams.
Each year our netball coaches organise trips to watch high level netball; recent excursions have included Team Bath Superleague fixtures and England v Australia Tri-Series matches at Wembley Arena.
