Easter Newsletter

In a very different post-holiday-newsletter update, I hope you are all safe and healthy and home as much as possible.

The 2019/20 season has been such a strong one for the club. The senior regional team are back in ERL division 2 showing their strength. The senior local league squads are representing the club perfectly (as ever) - fantastic results across all divisions showing the social, friendly, competitive netball we offer at Grangers. The youth players display more brilliant results in both the league and the cup, with huge improvements seen in both individual and squad play. The youth regional league was back for the first time in years, and we have proudly represented Bedfordshire with both a U14 and U16 squad. And the junior players finally started their match play in February with all NINE squads showing their talent.

Download the newsletter below to read more about what has been happening across the club, see who has shone so far during lockdown, find some fun netball and fitness activities to keep you busy and much more.

I am hoping to get a whole club season review out to you all. If you would like to write something about your achievements as a squad or your personal season so far, get in touch via email (grangersnetballclub@hotmail.com)!

Further Coronavirus Updates..

The Bedford & District Netball League have made the decision to suspend all netball leagues in Bedford for the time being. This covers the Adult, Youth and Junior leagues. As it's so close to the Easter break, they will be constantly reviewing the situation and will let us know the plan after the holidays for restarts.

As for training, Lincroft School have cancelled all bookings meaning Adult and Regional training will be postponed until further notice. Keep check of your WhatsApp groups for training and Regional match details.

Junior and Youth training will also cease running for the near future. We will be following Gov and EN guidelines as to when we can resume activities. 

As a club, we hope everyone stays well and look forward to seeing everyone when netball is back in full force. 

Please keep checking the facebook group for most up to date information (link at bottom of site).

Coronavirus Update

As the guidelines with COVID-19 are developing so frequently, we will do our best to keep you up to date with all netball related news. As a club, we will be following England Netball's guidance to ensure the health and safety of all our members and their families, and the staff at the facilities we use. 

As per the last communication from England Netball, normal netball activity can continue but we need to help minimise risks.

We ask that all participants in the sessions wash their hands with warm water and soap or alcohol based hand gel on arrival, and as usual cover their mouth during coughs or sneezes. If anyone is feeling unwell, we would ask that they stay at home and take a break from netball until feeling better. During match play we will continue with three cheers, but will refrain from shaking hands.

Junior league will be running on Sunday, and Youth Cup Finals are set for Wednesday evening. Please send us an email if you have any issues with attending matches.

We will be providing updates when needed on Facebook, so please make sure you follow the Grangers page (link at the bottom of the site).
