When teamwork is your goal

Raise the morale, teamwork, fitness and enthusiasm of your netball players with a PGL netball tournament weekend, officiated by England Netball and played on courts built to England Netball standards. It’s a weekend of intensive match experience that helps improve skills and technique. But there’s much more.

There are adventure activities to help build confidence, teamwork and engagement, plus evening activities providing fun for everyone. Bring back motivated girls, girls with a strong team identity who are better players.

Filmed at PGL Liddington, our residential centre near Swindon, this video captures the action and adventure of a PGL netball weekend in three-and-a-half minutes.

Featured activities* include the giant swing, abseiling and aeroball and, of course, the girls in action on the netball court. Plus there’s highlights of the award ceremony, with England Netball star Sasha Corbin handing out the medals. Hope you enjoy it.

Working with England Netball

At the heart of your netball weekend programme is the tournament, designed for girls in years 7-11 (a minimum of 6 players per team are required to attend the weekend). The schedule of games allows each team maximum match experience, the chance to compete against other schools and also the opportunity to learn from watching other teams play. The tournament closes with a special presentation of medals and trophies by a member of the England netball team.

  • PGL Netball Weekends are officiated by England Netball; the governing body for netball in England.
  • Umpires provide ad hoc hints and tips on improving players’ techniques/tactics when requested and when available in downtime.
  • Umpires are able to adapt their officiating approach to suit your objectives: this will be discussed during the Party Leader Welcome Meeting.
  • A current member of the England Podium Squad will attend the event for the presentation ceremony to meet players, sign autographs and pose for pictures.
