Netball NI, the governing body for netball in Northern Ireland, is coming together with the sport’s leading online retailer Netball UK for a new partnership.
Netball UK, the one-stop shop for everything netball, will be the official retail partner of Netball NI for the next 12 months.
The partnership will provide exclusive offers to Netball NI members, a retail presence at Netball NI’s key fixtures and information and blogs from Netball UK’s team, including Superleague player Kerry Almond.
Netball in Northern Ireland is growing in popularity. The team is currently eighth in the world and solidified this position with an eighth place finish in April at the Commonwealth Games in Australia. They have also qualified for next year’s World Cup in Liverpool.
Debbie Hallas, managing director of Netball UK, said:
“This is an exciting partnership which will bring our one-stop shop for all things netball, backed up by expertise and service from top level players and coaches, to Netball Northern Ireland’s members at a time of growth for the sport. We look forward to building a strong relationship with Northern Ireland’s netballers in the months ahead.”
Geoff Wilson Chair of Netball Northern Ireland, added:
“We are delighted to bring on board netball UK as our official retail partner. Netball in Northern Ireland is going from strength to strength not only on the court but off it as well. This partnership is a key element in moving forward our sport by providing our members with all the merchandise and support required in a modern day sport.
We have recently signed a number of commercial partnerships over the last few months and this gives us a great platform to grow and develop the sport over the coming years.”
