Katarina Bickley, originally from the UK is driving establishment of a Netball Club in Uppsala. While she works in Stockholm and regularly plays for the Stockholm Netball Club she looks forward to playing in Uppsala. "I really enjoy playing netball in Stockholm but it will be great to also play in Uppsala and getting more local people involved!", says Katarina.
The club will be playing mixed, social netball and welcomes players looking to meet new people and get active in Uppsala, experienced or not with Netball. "We hope to build the club to the point where we can have both our local social league and as well as competing in the Stockholm Tuesday nights league, Netball Sweden National tournaments and International Amateur European tournaments" says Katarina.
Netball Sweden is working with groups all over the country to expand the reach of Netball and start clubs in more towns. Right now there is interest for new clubs in Landskrona, Karlskrona, Kalmar, Kungsbacka, Jönköping, Linköping, Örebro, Ramnäs, Heby, Kungsgården, Vänersborg and Umeå.
