Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles. Make sure you check out our website each week to keep up to date and if you have a great story let us know using the details below!
Olveston Netball Club (ONC) was originally formed in June 2010. It started as a village “Back to Netball” Club for the locals, the majority of whom had not played for many years (some since school). The idea was just to get together each week to have fun and get fit, whilst enjoying a good team sport – it turned out to be a huge success with a good turn out every week. Everyone quickly improved, and after playing many friendlies and a number of tournaments, in September 2011 it was decided to put forward a team to join the Avon Netball League. The first season was so enjoyable that ONC entered a second team to the league in September 2012.
Since 2012 ONC have been going from strength to strength and this weekend we celebrated our 1st and 2nd teams both becoming champions of their divisions and double club promotion!!!!
Our amazing coach Abbi Cosh and our incredible captains Nikki Tregenza and Vikki Layton have led us to this amazing double club promotion. Everyone has worked their socks off and being such brill team players and as a club we couldn’t be happier!!
