A new and exciting venture for netball in Yorkshire and beyond was launched in 2017 with Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Rhinos Foundation, committed to supporting the country’s most popular women’s team sport.

Leeds Rhinos Netball will deliver training hubs, camps and workshops across the region, with the ultimate aim of securing a Superleague franchise.

As well as working as part of the Leeds Rhinos family, Leeds Rhinos Netball is exploring links with Leeds Beckett University and hoping to establish a long-term partnership.

The Rhinos’ Netball Academy now has approximately 180 athletes, more than doubling the number from last season. The team are now also running five weekly training hubs across Yorkshire, accommodating an additional 65 players.

Leeds Rhinos Netball are visiting more schools than ever before to provide coaching sessions. ‘Mini Netball’ classes- for junior players aged 5-12 years old- have seen over a 300% growth in participation, with the sessions now being delivered to more than 90 aspiring netballers at four regional venues.

Leading Leeds Rhinos Netball is the former Yorkshire Jets head coach, ex-international player and current England technical coach Anna Carter, who works closely with the Leeds Rhinos Foundation to support their aim of changing lives through sport.
