Netball November is our time to congratulate one another and continue to build upon the great work in order to; promote existing netball events, develop new netball opportunities and provide new exit routes to make netball a sustainable sport.

You can join in the fun by sharing; what is happening in your area, club, school, organisation by hash tagging #netballnovember and/or contacting your Regional Netball Development Officer for more information.

West Wales Secure Sponsorship

West Wales Netball have received a fantastic sponsorship offer from Burns Pet Nutrition Company who have bought brand new kit for our players from U13s all the way through to Seniors.

The kit was designed and made by Manhattan Marketing of Llanelli, Burns Pet Company very kindly agreed to pay for 60 dresses and 4 sets of patch bibs.

The new playing kit was worn for the first time by our squads at the Welsh Netball HUB Tournament Weekend as part of Gemau Cymru.

Founder & owner of Burns Pet Nutrition, John Burns kindly agreed to join us for some photos of the new kit – but went the extra mile and donned a West Wales playing dress just for us J what a great sport.

This playing kit is a first for a long time in West Wales, previously squads have borrowed club & schools kit in order to attend tournaments – the girls were very proud to wear their own playing kit and represent their region thanks to Burns Pet Nutrition.

A huge *Thank You* goes to John and Burns Pet Nutrition for their support of West Wales Netball – We really appreciate it .
