Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.

“South West Hawks are a brand new mens netball team based in the South West of England encompassing players from Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas in the South West. With mens netball ever growing across the UK, Hawks are keen to represent the South West and give males on this side of the country the opportunity to play closer to home, or even start their netball journey!
South West Hawks have their first ever trials scheduled for Saturday 19th June at Coombe Dingle Sports Complex, Bristol. The trial is inviting all males whether experienced in netball or not, to come along and take part in some training and match play and experience a taster of the mens version of the game. The aim is for organisors to then form a team who can train and compete against both male and female netball teams across the UK.

With the England Mens & Mixed Netball National Tournament coming up in August 2021 Hawks are keen to field a side and be involved in making history for mens and mixed netball in the UK. So do you know any males who have always been keen to play but never given the opportunity? Are you a male sick of being sat on the side line of the court and fancy the chance to get stuck in? Then South West Hawks want to hear from you! Check out their social media pages for contact details and further information on upcoming dates.”
