Huddersfield Netball League
We are delighted to confirm our support and sponsorship of the Huddersfield ladies Netball League.
This very popular league was established back in the early 60’s and has grown in size, now with 35 teams and approximately 350 players across the Huddersfield area. Affiliated to England Netball, its Committee runs two different leagues in the annual calendar, a shorter one in the winter months and a longer summer league. As well as players and coaches, the league is supported by nearly 50 qualified and affiliated umpires.
As a local employer and business, PWS is very excited to offer its ongoing support to help this fantastic league run its programme of events. With its national team doing so well, we want to contribute towards the continued development and success of this wonderful sport in our area.
Sport England released their latest Active People Survey last year and it was great news for netball.
The results show the highest ever number of netballers are playing regularly since the survey began. Meaning also that over the last year, netball has been the fastest growing female team sport.
This continues in West Yorkshire and our local area, with a number of clubs playing daily at all level of competitions.
PWS are delighted to support and sponsor a local well established Netball team – the Rockets Netball Club.
The club was established over 30 years ago by its current Coach, Helen Whiteley and its members range from age 16 to over 50, some original team members still very much active and playing now, week in week out.
Meet the team below, in their new dresses, sponsored by PWS.
Meltham Golf Club Scratch Team
We are the proud sponsors of the Scratch Golf Team at Meltham Golf Club in Huddersfield.
Meltham Golf Club is a well-respected club within the Huddersfield and Halifax Golf union and the scratch team have played in the premier division within the county for the last ten years, winning the division in 2015.
In 2017 they continue to field a strong team, currently leading the premier division at this time. A number of elite golfers continue to represent Meltham and their sponsors at a Regional, National and International Level.
As continued sponsors, PWS aid the supply of golf clothing and golf equipment for the team members in order to assist with their development and representation in the golfing world.
Netherton Junior Football Club
We are delighted to have been able to support and sponsor the Netherton Junior Football Club football kits for their annual tournament in Besançon, France.
Besançon is a city in eastern France, near the border with Switzerland, and the Huddersfield based junior team travels there annually, to compete in a tournament – known as the ‘Tournoi des P'tits Champions’.
The young people have a wonderful time, playing football (and winning), practising their French and meeting their counterparts from across the channel.
