About Us

Thoroughbreds Netball Club has developed from a single team in the 1970ʼs into a thriving community based club. With around 150 members and a large junior section, it is an open club that welcomes players at all levels. The club can boast the development of a large number of “home grown” players who have represented at county and regional level and have been included in national screening, some have represented national teams. The elite level is led by player / coach Helene Buckingham, a former international player and England U17 player. The squad also includes an ex-England and Mavericks players.

Thoroughbreds welcomes players of all abilities from year 3/4 and above and has a set of experienced and highly qualified coaches to support their junior section.

The focus of this age group is very much on having fun, making friends and getting involved in a new sport. Many players have then progressed to gaining places in the local  County Satellite Centres, which is the first rung on the performance pathway.

Due to the Corona virus pandemic and all the uncertainty at this present time, the East Competition TSG has made the decision to delay the U14 and U16 ERYL entry tournament till possibly 5th/6th September 2020.

This date will be dependent on what further updates and guidance is provided by the Government and England Netball. We hope to be in position to provide further information over the next coming weeks.

Hi All

Just wondering if there will be any supporters at the Fillies Match this evening who would be happy to score for Carla Wilkins.
It’s a Norwich School fixture but we also have a rearranged game so all girls are playing!
Any help greatly appreciated 🙏🏼
