Tournaments provide an ideal opportunity to play netball of a different nature with quick turnaround, short matches and a varying standard. We welcome diversity and both hold and participate in a wide variety of tournaments throughout the year. Below, we have provided an insight into the tournament life of HLNC!
At Hinckley Ladies, we regularly field teams for the Evelyn Fisher end of season tournament for the Coventry and Warwickshire League, which is typically held in April/May. Teams generally play within their division and tournament winners are announced at the annual awards evening.
Hosted by us!
The world truly does feel like our oyster now that we have our very new home ground. As a result of this, we are able to host our own tournaments, bring netball to our local community and raise the profile of our club.
We are very proud to hold our annual mixed netball tournament in memory of a past member, Beth Richards. This tournament has been a permanent fixture since 2007 and sees men join in the fun of playing netball. A highly entertaining and good-spirited tournament, we welcome teams of 4 men/3 women or vice versa to participate. Our last tournament was held in May 2014, and saw ‘Can We Kick It?’ crowned champions. Our wooden spoon was awarded to ‘The Travis Perkins Crew’.
In 2014, we held our first Schools Tournament. Born from an initiative from some of our younger members, Hinckley Ladies invited local school teams to participate in a tournament. Sponsored by D&R Meats, prizes were awarded to the winning team from Dixie Grammar. It is our intention to keep this as an ongoing event, which can only get bigger and better.
Back to Netball Summer Tournament
We welcome netballers of all standards and like hosting our Back to Netball tournament for those ladies who maybe feel a little rusty if they haven’t played netball in a while. Held in the summer months, this is an ideal time to reaffirm your love of netball in fun and relaxed games. You never know, you may wish to trial for our winter season teams!
We are always on the look out for tournaments that we can enter a team into, whether this be local or a bit further afield.
We regularly participate in tournaments held by teams in our league, Griff and Coton and Stockton. These are held during the summer months, which keep our netball minds active whilst in a break from the winter season.
Travelling is not a barrier for us; we will play netball wherever we can find some. Recent tours have included Manchester, Essex and Skegness! Great fun had by all, and we all love collecting the signature tour hoody or t-shirt!
