Henley Hawks Netball Club was founded by Louise Porter, it is her passion for the game that has made the club go from strength to strength. Like most things the club came from humble beginnings, in 2009 in Nettlebed a group of women used to meet on a Monday evening and went by the name of “Nettlebed Back To Netball Group”, aka the Nettlebed Stingers. With such a demand for netball and only one court to train on, it was time to find a new home.
In 2021 the club officially relocated to Henley Rugby Club, training on both the Rupert House School Netball Courts and Henley College Sports Hall. This move allowed us to grow and offer more netball to the local community, we now offer multiple sessions a week, which are suitable for all.
We are immensely proud to have four league teams representing us in PREM, DIV2 and DIV3 in the Maidenhead District Netball League (MDNL) as well as DIV1 in Reading District Netball League (RDNL). Thank you to our match kit sponsors for the season Hart Street Tavern and Tara Neil Kitchens.
In January 2023 we launched our Junior Netball training sessions which run on Sunday mornings for YR2-YR9. On Wednesday evenings we run Youth Netball for YR9-YR12.
In April 2023 we launched the Henley Hawks Mens Netball squad, the squad have had an amazing start to netball competing in the EMMNA National Championships Netball in August 2023 and coming away as one of the top 10 teams in the UK. We also play regular Mixed netball matches across the country.
As a club we promote mental and physical health both on and off the court. We aim to strengthen our community through connections made in sport. Sport unifies us all and diversifies our friendship groups. Women’s sport is on the rise and we aim to install values of acceptance and inclusion through team sports.
New players are always welcome to join us, your first session is FREE. Pop us a message for more details and be sure to follow us on social media #henleyhawksnetballclub
