Your guide to primary-age netball

Get boys and girls to give netball a whirl with local clubs and games


England Netball is the website to start with if you think your kids might want to try out netball at a local club. There are links to regions around the country, each with their own website, with listings of local development officers whose job it is to try to encourage more kids to play the sport.


High 5 is the massively popular entry game of netball. It’s a great way for kids to get active, enjoy themselves and make new friends. It’s designed specifically for primary-age children and uses fun and variety to get them into the game, polish skills and aid fitness. Rather than the traditional 7-aside, it’s 5-aside, with the aim that players rotate and therefore get used to playing a varitey of positions. Teams can either be single sex or with 2 boys on the court at any one time.
