After a decade 2 new netball clubs have registered in Sweden.
New Netball clubs have begun in Gothenburg and Skåne. This makes 3 clubs in Sweden in addition to the Stockholm Netball Club that has been running since 2008. The new clubs were supported to start by the Stockholm Netball Club committee who assisted in recruiting and registration.
“We are so pleased to see new clubs starting in Sweden and we look forward to playing with and against these new players!”
Heather Main, Founder/Treasurer, Stockholm Netball Club 2019.
Welcome Gothenburg and Skåne!
