Welcome to the Acton Netball League’s homepage!
Here you will find information on the upcoming Acton leagues and any updates on the season.
Summer 2013 Season Details
The summer season will be starting on Tuesday 16th July and will run through until 10th September.
Seasons run for 9 weeks with two weeks of finals (the top four teams compete in the semi-finals 1v4 2v3). All teams not making the finals still play during finals weeks.
How to Register for the Spring 2013 Season
We take registrations from teams, small groups and inviduals (we organise teams for small groups and individuals).
Nominations are now being taken for the Spring season and we expect substantial demand for places so I urge all teams to start thinking about whether or not you would like to placing a team in our competition. A £40.00 deposit needs to be made as soon as possible to secure your team a place in the league. This can be paid via our online payments option. Please also fill out your team registration pro-forma – available via email to Lauren Chester, email email@example.com
For current teams and players – you must have filled in a registration pro-forma and made FULL payment by Friday 5th July 2013 to guarantee your position for next season.
For new teams – There are some spaces already available in our mixed and ladies b divisions. Spots will be filled in order of receipt of the £40 deposit, which will secure your spot temporarily. New teams must have filled in a registration pro-forma and made FULL payment by Tuesday 9th July 2013 to guarantee your position for next season.
For new individual players – if you are interested in joining as an individual, we always have teams looking for additional players to join their ranks. Please send us an email with the following details (name, age, phone number, email address, preferred position, details of any previous experience) and we will add you onto our waiting list. We will generally place you into teams sometime during the two weeks before the competition so as to find a team that is the most appropriate fit.
Venue Details & Location
We have four outdoor, fullsize courts with floodlights which allow play in all seasons and weather. There are full showering and changing facilities at the courts.
Reynolds Sports Centre, High School, Gunnersbury Lane, Acton, W3 8EY. Click on link for Map. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/
Acton High School is almost across the road from the station, about 2 minutes walk.
Games run at 7:00pm, 7:45pm and 8:30pm time slots. Games have 4 x 10 minute quarters.
All equipment is supplied and there are no uniform requirements.
We also have a reserve list that all players are encouraged to add their names to. This allows teams to find spare players when they are short from week to week and also allows players to pick up a few extra games some nights.
The All Nations supply paid umpires. We are always looking for people who can umpire as the games cannot go on without them! If you are qualified, or have many years experience in playing and want to earn some easy money, then please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Tuesday after the game is Pub night! Our local sponsor is The Kings Head, (214 High Street, 5 minute walk from netball courts) where there is reserved seating and a special meal deal for us to eat, relax and socialise.
