Hinckley Ladies Netball Club have six teams registered in the Coventry and Warwickshire Netball Association League (CWNA). This league is played on Saturdays from October through to March/early April with a League “End of Season” tournament in April.
We also have training members that play ad hoc fixtures outside of this principle league.
TEAM SELECTIONS AND TRAINING
Each year the club holds trials for players looking to compete, to select teams for the forthcoming season. Trials are announced in May and details can be found in the calendar. For further details, please submit a query through the Contact Us page.
Training takes place every Wednesday evening from August to April. Please see the Calendar for details of dates and times.
As the biggest female sport in the country, England Netball have been active in promoting their “Back to Netball” schemes via county and region to encourage women who may not have played since school to go along to one of their sessions. This philosophy is adopted by HLNC who periodically run dedicated Back to Netball sessions with UKCC qualified coaches.
The CWNA league currently has 8 divisions. HLNC is the only Leicester based club playing in the league and this season we have 5 teams playing in divisions 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. All matches take place on a Saturday at either a home or away venue at 10.30am, 12.45pm or 3.00pm.
Our home matches are played on Our Courts situated at Leicester Road Sports Ground, Leicester Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 3DR. We play in an outdoor league and as such the courts that we use have floodlighting facilities. Away matches take place around the Leamington, Rugby and Coventry areas.
OUT OF SEASON NETBALL
Throughout the year the club organises additional events for those that wish to participate. We continue to offer all club members the opportunity to play in an unaffiliated league during the summer months to develop their skills in preparation for the league matches commencing in October. We also hold our own annual “Beth’s” mixed tournament each summer. For more information on these events check out the Tournaments and Events pages.
The clubs events team plan an annual social calendar with entertainment and activities aimed at both junior and senior members. As a self funding club some of our events include fundraising activities to support the running of the club. For details of current social activities take a look at the Events, What’s On, Fundraising and Calendar pages.
