To ease parking difficulties at the venue, the SJNL Administrator has reminded us that, in addition to the parking around the school (details above), there is also a large public car park on King Street TF4 2AA within easy walking distance.


Training: Any suitable clothing may be worn for practices/training – for your own comfort, we advise no trackie bottoms and expect you to wear suitable footwear – no plimsolls or fashion trainers please.

Matches: Our online shop at Macron has grown – take a look!


Through Macron’s sponsorship, we are still be able to offer players’ initials and Club Name printed on the reverse of the hoody free of charge.

VERY IMPORTANT when ordering hoodies online you need to write in the ‘notes section’ ‘Delivered by Andy’ together with the player’s 3 initials. DO NOT PUT INITIALS REQUIRED IN THE ORDER SYSTEM AS IT WILL CHARGE AND DO NOT CLICK ON DELIVERY PLEASE.


We have ten hard-working coaches now; Sian, Hollie, Georgia and Niamh who are all Level 2 qualified and our Level 1 coaches Caroline, Andrea, Karen, Sally and Rhianne!

We are always looking for extra help so if you have a coaching qualification or would like to train for one please contact us.

Other stuff?

Members should not wear jewellery during training or matches and should keep their fingernails short and safe.

To comply with the Leisure Centre regulations, and to encourage members to focus during training sessions, mobile phones should be turned off whilst members are inside the Leisure Centre.

Oswestry Junior Netball Club was awarded the Bronze award of England Netball Association’s Club Action Planning Scheme (CAPS) in 2009.

    Hi Caroline
    Your daughter is very welcome to come along to one of our Saturday morning training sessions and have a go. If she enjoys the session and would like to join our Club and come along regularly then she will be given the forms and information to join then. Much of the information can be found on the pages of our website – click on the menus to the right.
    There are three Saturday sessions at Oswestry Leisure Centre:
    8.45am – 10.00am U11s
    10.00am – 11.15am Years 7, 8 and 9
    11.15am – 12.30pm Years 10 and 11
    so your daughter should come along to the appropriate session.
    Hope that helps?

    Hi Rachel
    Sorry for the late reply – I have just seen your comment on our website.
    Players can join the Club at any time providing there are spaces in the classes. If you tell me how old you are I can check to see if there are spaces in that age group when all the players have returned on Saturday.

  3. Gareth Jones Says:

    Hi. I spoke to you a couple of months ago regarding my daughter Emma. She will be 10 in February and is in year 5 in school. You told me to email you around now to see if there was room for her to start after Christmas. I await your reply. Many thanks Gareth Jones.

      Hi Gareth
      As I must have mentioned to you before, the U11 session is administered by the Leisure Centre although our coaches run them. The Leisure Centre will be opening bookings on the session shortly if they have not already started so you should go down there soon and see if there is space for Emma.
      I am sorry that I can’t be of more help.
      Good luck!

  4. Sarah Taylor Says:

    Hello. I have two daughters who both play netball at school and are interested in joining a club. One is in year 7 and the other year 6.

    Do you have space and could they both play at the same time?

    Many thanks


    • hpyates Says:

      Hi Sarah

      I am most sorry but I don’t think that any admin saw this enquiry. It was dismissed by the system?!

      If you are still interested, I know that we don’t have space for your Year 6 daughter but there may be for your elder daughter. Let me know and we’ll look into it?

      Best wishes

  5. David Kynaston Says:

    Hi. My daughter is year 8 and loves netball. She plays now in Welshpool but they don’t seem to play matches. Do you have places available in her age group? Could she come sometime and see what it’s like?

    • hpyates Says:

      Hi David

      Your daughter is very welcome to come along to one of our Saturday morning training sessions and have a go.

      We finish for Christmas on the 24th November – next Saturday (we have matches on the 25th) – so that would be your best chance to have a taster session until we start back on 12th January.

      Your daughter’s session would be:
      10.00am – 11.15am Years 7, 8 and 9
      and she should come along in appropriate sports wear to meet our coaches and warm up before the session – say 9:50 at the Sports Hall in the Leisure Centre?

      Let me know if she is coming and I will forewarn the coaches

      Hope that helps?

  6. Elaine Roberts Says:

    Hi my daughter Hannah is interested in joining your netball club. She’s 15, just wondering if you have an spaces?

    Kind regards

    • hpyates Says:

      Hi Elaine

      That’s great that your daughter Hannah wants to play netball and would like to join our Club.

      Unfortunately, ‘on paper’ we are full this year and can only take those who were already on our waiting list.

      However, if you give me a contact email address and confirm which school year Hannah is in, I will contact you again as soon as we have space which may happen sooner than we think if someone doesn’t turn up for the start of the year on September 6th (next Saturday).
