Netball

 

Netball is the major sport for girls during the Spring Term.

 

Teams play against local independent schools at the weekend, entering District and County competitions. Some of our students have been selected to represent at County and Regional Netball level.

Head of Netball Nicole Humphrys, who plays in the Vitality Netball Superleague with Surrey Storm, is passionate about building both participation and performance at Gordon’s School.

With over 20 netball teams our programme caters for all ages and abilities. 

Gordon’s have links with a number of Superleague franchises with athletes at U17 (Academies) and U19 (NPL), including London Pulse, Saracens Mavericks and Surrey Storm. We also have younger athletes featuring in the England Netball Performance Pathway at Satellite and County Academies.

Our high performance players are supported with 1:1 sessions, individualised strength and conditioning programmes (lead by head of S&C Ian Jones), and video analysis.

Facilities and Coaching

With a developing fixture programme, we have four outdoor netball courts and brand new sports hall (due for completion in September ). Our programme is supported by netball specialist coaches who help run our teams, where our girls receive excellent technical coaching of the game.
