About Us


Our Club is dedicated to supporting young netballers by encouraging, supporting and developing their skills and love of this great game.

The Ashburton Netball Club was created in 1976 by then Ashburton Primary School physical education teacher. She and two mothers wanted to give girls a sport to play after school and on the weekends. The initial two teams trained on the Ashburton Primary School court and games were played in the Deakin Netball Association every Saturday afternoon in the carpark behind the Ashburton shops.  “We chose the uniform colours because they were the colours of the school and of the Australian netball team – all yellow with green bibs.”

Ashburton Netball Club exists because of the tremendous support of many individuals that volunteer their time to be on the committee, coach, team managers and assist during the many games and tournaments held throughout the season. This website will be used to keep players, parents, coaches and the community informed about club related information.
