Each year Tyne and Wear County review the league rules and also look for ways to improve competition for you, our members. The link below will take you to a short Questionnaire - just 9 questions. Please complete a Questionnaire to let us have your views on the current leagues, particularly the local rules and regulations that we play to. We are also interested in how we can increase opportunities to play netball, especially providing opportunities for new players. Finally there is a lot of work involved in delivering playing opportunities so we are looking for ways that clubs can contribute to ensure our leagues run smoothly.
Net Gains is founded by England international and Team Northumbria NSL player Leah Kennedy.
In 2016, Kennedy was one of the first athletes to be offered a full time England contract and was the first North Eastern born and bred player to make her senior international cap in over ten years. Whilst training and playing full time Kennedy created Net Gains to be able to share her knowledge gained from the international coaches such as Tracey Neville, Tearoha Keenan, Kate Carpenter and Lisa Stanley- Craig she has been lucky enough to play for.
Kennedy is a level 2 netball coach currently coaching the netball programme at Dame Allan’s School and GALs Netball club. She has also been doing some defence coaching at Team Northumbria NSL. Net Gains offers several netball services to meet the clients needs including netball sessions, masterclasses, session plans and coaching workshops. We currently have dates available throughout May, June and the beginning of July.
If you wish to have Leah Kennedy come into your club providing a service to encourage and inspire your netballers, please do not hesitate to get in contact for further information.
