The London and South East Region is one of 9 Regional Units covering England. Each Region has an elected Regional Management Board (RMB) of volunteers who work closely with England Netball staff. Together we develop and facilitate the delivery of all aspects of netball within the Region.
The London and South East Region is made up of four Counties:
Our Region was the home of Martina Bergman-Österberg (initially in Hampsted) but subsequently Dartford (Kent) who played a pivotal role in the early development of netball as a sport. The London and South East Region became the home of netball in the United Kingdom and today still has the world's oldest netball club.
Each County has their own County committee dealing with local matters and a Netball Development Officer (NDO) who works to promote and develop netball within the County through clubs and schools.
There are also four Netball Development Community Coaches Netball Development Community Coaches (NDCCs) who are responsible for developing, marketing and coaching the Back to Netball and Walking Netball programmes.
The England Netball Regional staff along with the Netball Development Officers are responsible for Club Development including the Club Action Planning Scheme (CAPS), School Club Links Programme (PESSCL), communication and marketing, education and training, talent development, competition, finance and increasing participation.
For all general enquiries, you can contact the Regional Office directly by email, phone or post. We are based at The House of Sport in Borough, South London.
The Regional Management Board
The Region is governed by the Regional Management Board (RMB) along with our Technical Support Groups (TSGs) who work in key areas such as Competition, Coaching, Finance, Communications, Officiating and Performance.
The TSGs provide advice and support to the RMB as well as running the Regional Leagues and the Talent Development Programme in the Region.
Every two years the Elected Officers (President, Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) are up for election at the AGM.
