All Abilities Netball

All abilities netball at Manningham Netball

A wonderful opportunity for ‘all abilities’ sportspeople to learn how to play netball, make new friends and be part of a vibrant and supportive sporting community.

All Abilities Netball is for avid netballers who have a disability. A disability may be generally defined as a condition which may restrict a person’s mental, sensory or mobility functions to undertake or perform a task in the same way as a person who does not have a disability.

An All Abilities Netball Programme began at Doncaster and Districts Netball Association in July 2015 when clinics were held for ‘all abilities’ participants to learn how to play netball, make new friends and be part of a vibrant and supportive sporting community. As the number of players increased, a weekly competition developed.

All Abilities Netball Programme

The programme, consisting of two parts, runs alongside the Manningham Netball mainstream competition on Saturday mornings and games are played in two seasons, Autumn and Spring.  The first part is devoted to warm up and skills sessions at 10.00am.  The second part is competition games commencing at 11.00am.

The players are supported both on court and off court by members of the All Abilities Committee, volunteer coaches from clubs within the Association, past players from our clubs who wish to give back to the Association  and specialist umpires.  All of our personnel hold current Working With Children Checks and it is our focus to create a safe and positive environment for everyone participating in the All Abilities programme.

No previous experience is required to join, and the competition is open to all ages, both males and females.

Further Opportunities

The players have also had the opportunity to play against other Associations’ All Abilities teams at tournaments and some have also represented the Chisholm Region at State Titles Championships. As the competition has evolved, the players have also had the opportunity to compete against other Associations on a regular basis.
