Counties in the South West Region
Netball South West comprises eight counties in the south west region of England, including Jersey.
Each county oversees netball activity in their area covering competition, talent, educating the workforce, increasing participation and promoting netball. In addition to their volunteer committees, each county has a Netball Development Officer or NDO.
Access your county from the left hand side for more information on the various leagues, competitions and support available in your area. Relevant contact details for staff and volunteers are also included.
The Regional Team
Alongside each of the Netball Development Officers based in each county is the regional team consisting of the Regional Manager, Regional Development Officer and the Regional Coordinator. These positions oversee all of the counties and their roles are based around growing participation and improving experiences for netballers across the region as a whole.
Regional Manager – Jenny Hannis
Hi, I’m Jenny and I’m the Regional Manager for the South West. I’ve been with England Netball for 3 years and I am responsible for leading the south west team to achieve our targets and grow participation in netball. I manage the Netball Development Officers and Regional Co-ordinator and work closely with the Regional Management Board to support the delivery of the regional plan. Outside of work you’ll most likely find me in the gym but I also enjoy playing netball in a social league.
Regional Development Officer – Rachel Bussey
Hello! My name is Rachel and I am the Regional Netball Development Officer. I work 2.5 days a week and focus on supporting the region with driving participation. I returned to netball, having not played it since school, in 2008 when I moved to Gloucestershire. I played for a local club before having my son in the summer of 2014 and after a short time off, have returned to my club as a coach. Netball aside, I am a qualified children’s yoga teacher and when I’m not coaching or stretching, I can be found with a paintbrush in my hand renovating my house.
Regional Coordinator – Sam Kemp
Hi, I’m Sam and I’m the regional coordinator for the South West . I am based at the regional office and mainly concentrate on the administration of CPD and UKCC courses, supporting Jenny and the NDO team as well as being the main point of contact for the region – so if you have a question or a problem, just ask me! Outside of work I enjoy playing and watching many sports (netball included!) – I am a semi-pro footballer and newbie badminton player! The rest of the time I’m most likely watching films and eating.
