Condover May 2019 - A Birmingham City Success Story!

This year the Club broke with a tradition of over 20 years.  In previous years we have taken teams to Netball Weekends at Brean Sands in June and July. We always enjoyed the netball, but the accommodation has become progressively worse over the years, so this year we decided to try an alternative.

Condover Hall

We took a Year 8 team and a Year 9 team to Condover Hall in Shropshire for a weekend of netball and other activities. Helping our Head Coach Dianne with the weekend were Rhiannon, who had organised the whole thing for us, and coaches Jean and Emma. Condover Hall is an Elizabethan Stately Home, now run as a residential adventure centre by JCA. The weekend was well organised by the Condover staff and the Netball Providers led by Joanne Coker, who is an International Umpire.  The accommodation and food were very good. 

Saturday morning was free for activities. The girls took part in archery, an aerial assualt course, climbing wall and a zip wire. There were other activities indoors, but the weather was fine and warm, so most of the time we were outside enjoying the sunshine.

Both our teams won every match on the Saturday, so they both qualified for the Cup Competitions on Sunday. On Sunday our Year 8s again won every single match, including the Final, beating Northwich by 5 goals to 3. Our Year 9 team won or drew all their matches except the Final, which they lost to Northwich NC by 3 goals to 10. 

Most of the teams participating this weekend were teams from private schools. Northwich was the only other Junior Netball Club, many of whose players play also for County or elite teams such as Oldham.  All in all our girls have good reason to be proud of themselves.

The worst part of the weekend was the return journey where we had to contend with an M54 closure and the Velo Race which blocked many routes back into Birmingam.

A link across the globe...

Have you ever wondered what happens to the kit we no longer use? We had boxes and boxes of old kit, some of it going back to the the early days of the club and a lot of it brand new. 

Then we heard of an initiative where a coach called Miriam Sawyer was arranging to take old and unwanted netball kit out to Uganda so that kids there could get some use out of it. So we contacted her and packed up four or five cardboard boxes full of skirts, tops, bibs and other no longer used kit. These were collected by a friend of a friend who happened to work in Bournville, and from there they made their way to Uganda where the kit was given to netball players there. 

These girls are wearing ex-Birmingham City shirts and patch bibs. Some of you may recognise them. The shirts, not the girls! And that is Miriam in the centre, who has done a wonderful job that has benefited both ourselves and the girls in Uganda.

Joining the Club

This year (2021-2022) saw an unprecedented number of new applications to join the Club.  So much so, that we have had to  suspend applications temporarily in some years. The table below shows in blue the school years in which we can currently take on new players.

 3 5 6  7 9  10 11

Up to Year 6 we take beginners and non-beginners (subject to availability of places). We give two weeks' free training to new players, without commitment either way. We do not take beginners above Year 6.

In Years 7 to 11  we take girls with intermediate experience in netball, and who show, during a free two-week trial period, that they have sufficient experience and abilty to fit into our senior teams. They will typically have played regularly for a school team, or, if new to the area, for another club. 

Above all we need players who are coachable. 

Subscriptions on the 'We Offer' page. 

New members of the Club should  complete the Membership Form. 

We are not yet ready for new players just to turn up at training without prior communication.

We accept membership forms as email attachments.
