Wattisham Blades

Wattisham Blades

Formed in 2012 by a few Army Wives based at Wattisham, the Wattisham Blades Netball Club has grown hugely into a close-knit, friendly bunch of ladies of all ages, sizes, shapes, abilities and fitness levels. Season 2016-17 saw three League Teams in the South Suffolk Netball League plus a Junior Team formed from Ipswich based, Chantry Academy. In 2017, we have also introduced a group of juniors (Mini’s) at Wattisham from the age of nine to attend sessions and numbers have steadily been increasing with new members coming along each week.

We are a fun social club and regularly hold Bingo, Curry and Quiz nights to help raise money for our club to support members through umpiring and coaching courses as well as equipment. We also go on a netball tour each summer, an event not to be missed!

We train on Thursday evenings at the gym on the army base in Wattisham:

Juniors 6:30-7:30

Adults: 7:30-9pm

We have three Level 2 coaches and one Level 1 coach with more waiting to go on courses soon, most of our sessions are coach led. We also have several umpires from beginner to C Award so we generally manage to umpire all our own games.

Our adult fees are currently £12 per month, which covers umpiring fees, court hire and coaching as well as the usual cost of affiliation to England Netball. For our Mini’s it’s £2.50 per session which we ask for half-termly. We have a kit supplier, STC and order new kit regularly. T-shirts from £9, Hoodies from £18 and dresses £28 (available for adults and Mini’s). We wear black dresses with stick on bibs, black hoodies and red shorts under the dress.

We love to see new faces so feel free to contact us should you wish to join our club!
