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.
