Clubs

In the London and the South East region we have nearly 400 clubs across the four counties; Essex Met, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey.
These clubs play in various leagues and many are looking for new players and volunteers.

In this section you will find information on:


Finding a Club


The best way to find a club is to speak with your Netball Development Officer. They will be aware of which teams and clubs train and play in your county and which would be best suited to your level. We advise getting the contacts for a couple of local clubs so that you can go along and try a couple of training sessions, then join the club you feel best suited to.
Some clubs have provided their details to be included in our Club Directory. Please note that these clubs are independent organisations.

Junior Netball Clubs


If you are a junior player looking for a club we would recommend approaching CAPS accredited clubs. These clubs are recognised nationally as having a well run club which is ACTIVE and ACCESSIBLE for children and young people. 
Junior Netball clubs are included within our club directory or contact your Netball Development Officer.


CAPS (Club Action Planning Scheme)


The Club Action Planning Scheme (CAPS) is a programme designed to captivate you and your netball club. It aims to support you to deliver a quality netball development programme and operate in line with best practice.

CAPS is aligned to the Sport England Clubmark accreditation scheme which is the only National cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards

In line with the Clubmark award, CAPS focuses on four key areas that impact Netball clubs:
Duty of Care and Child Protection
Coaching and Competition
Club Management/Administration
Sports Equity and Ethics

CAPS has three levels of accreditation: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze CAPS is the first level, incorporating the Clubmark criteria covering the areas of safeguarding and protecting children and young people, quality coaching and officiating, competition, talent development, sports equity and good management. Bronze must be achieved before Silver or Gold.

Silver and Gold CAPS are about demonstrating further quality across the areas of coaching, officiating, and developing volunteers. If you achieve Silver or Gold, you are demonstrating that you have met the minimum operating standards required for Clubmark but have also demonstrated a further commitment to ensuring a club environment which provides a higher quality of coaching, officiating, leadership and volunteering opportunities for the young people at your club.

Further information about CAPS can be found on the England Netball website here:

Support is available to help clubs work through the CAPS process, you can contact your County Netball Development Officer or Regional Co-ordinator. If you are interested in becoming a CAPS accredited club please contact


Club Administration

You don't have to just play to be a part of your Netball Club! There are many other tasks undertaken behind the scenes to ensure that clubs function in the safest way possible. Contact your club to see how you can help!

If your club needs help with their administration it is worth making use of the CAPs templates as these ensure your club is considering operating within the accepted and adopted minimum operating standards. CAPS templates can be found here:
