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 delivers training hubs, camps and workshops across the region and has secured a license to join the Vitality Netball Superleague in 2021, bringing elite level Netball to Yorkshire.

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, with the U19s squad already competing in the National League

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 former Manchester Thunder and Northern Ireland Head Coach, Dan Ryan, who works closely with Leeds Rhinos Foundation to create more opportunities for girls to get involved with the sport and improve standards amongst coaches and players.
