Formed in Huntingdon in 1988, Hawks Netball Club is a successful and sociable club comprising both senior and junior sections. Proud to welcome members of mixed experience, their aim is to support ladies in enjoying the fabulous game of Netball. Hawks maintain a friendly but competitive ethos and are always keen to develop. They have 3 senior teams playing in the Cambridgeshire League, 1 senior team in the Bedfordshire League, and 2 junior teams playing in the Cambridgeshire under 14 and under 16 leagues. Training is delivered by certified coaches from within the club and Hawks are committed to supporting players who are interested in coaching or umpiring.
Phebys Accountants are keen to support their local community and see the sponsorship of the UK’s number one women’s sport as a great way to do that.
Netballis on the rise across England, with record numbers of participants playing the game and England victorious at the Commonwealth Games in 2018. “Netball is thriving, a lot of girls live and breathe netball,” says England Netball development officer Pauline Knight.
A surge in Super League level netball has helped with the promotion of the sport, plus the national team being ranked 2nd in the world, splitting the domination of Australia (ranked number one) and New Zealand (ranked 3rd).
Netball is a very inclusive sport – having evolved unrecognisably from the game that many remember from their school days. With the Back to Netball initiative celebrating its tenth birthday this month, walking netball being played across the country and leagues for children from age 8 through to adults, regional, national and professional leagues, there is a level for everyone.
“Phebys are looking to support grass roots netball by enabling the court costs for Hawks Netball to be covered, allowing the club to focus on coaching, equipment and match fees,” states CEO, Scott Pheby. “Phebys are keen that financial issues do not stop people playing sport and that, in supporting the players and overall structure at Hawks Netball, they are able to engage more people to get active and play competitive sport,” Scott continues.
