...Welcome to Birmingham City Netball Club!



Latest Info:

Summer Training

Training during the 2021 Summer Holidays starts on 26th July and ends on 23rd August. All age groups will be training outdoors on Mondays at:

Billesley Tennis Club, Wheelers Lane, Billesley, Birmingham B13 0ST

The sessions are:

Mondays 6:00pm to 7:20pm Years 3 to 7

Mondays 7:30pm to 8:50pm Years 8 +

These sessions are open to existing players only. New players can join in September. However because of low numbers we will consider Year 5s during the summer if they already play the game.

From September 2021 we will take beginners and non-beginners up to Year 6 (subject to availability of places). We give two week's free training to new players, without commitment either way. An alternative or additional route into netball for this age range is provided by our linked Little League, which we set up in February/March each year and play matches in teams during Summer Term.

In Year 7 and above we take girls who show, during a free two-week trial period, that they have sufficient experience and abilty to fit into our senior teams. We do not take beginners above Year 6.

Above all we need players who are coachable. 

Subscriptions recommence at full rates from 1st September 2021.  Details are on the 'We Offer' page. 


Covid Roadmap

 From 19th July we are onto the final stage of the England Netball Covid Roadmap. All modifications to the game have been removed, but sensible precautions will continue to be taken. This involves social distancing where possible, wearing masks indoors in crowded situations (unless playing netball) and sanitising hands and balls at the beginning and end of every session (but not in between). Swapping of bibs is permitted, but we will still wash them regularly. Needless to say, people who have developed symptoms of Covid should not attend netball, and self-isolation remains in place in line with Government advice.

Success in CAPS Application at last!

Bronze CAPS Certificate

On 5th December 2019 we at last received confirmation from England Netball that our application for Bronze certification in the Club Action Planning Scheme (CAPS) has been successful.

Thanks to all concerned whose hard work has made this possible!

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.
