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

Over the last few months, the thought of getting back on court was at the forefront of the Netball Family’s mind. Amazingly we can now start to play again through the modified version of the game but while netball was absent there have been other ways that people have shown their love and passion for the sport.

Since England Netball launched its #RiseAgain campaign, more than 50,000 of you have pledged your membership to England Netball, your region and county to help the sport get back on court. Some of the responses we’ve had from players, umpires, parents, the Vitality Roses, have made us feel proud of everyone involved in this sport, again and again.

Do you know what your membership to the South West gets you? Listen to the Karen Jones, Chair of Netball South West explaining the benefits of being a member of the region on our facebook page.

If you weren’t aware, England Netball asked for those who choose to pay  the  full  membership fee between 3 August and 30 September 2020, they want to say  thank you  in a unique way; by printing your name on the court for the next Vitality Roses home international series  to proudly show all of the names of those members who came together to help netball  #RiseAgain. 

However, we recognise that some members of our  Netball  Family have also suffered financial hardship this year, so for that reason, we want to offer an  optional  30% discount*  (payable against the national element of  membership)  to those who need it, to ensure everyone who  wants to, can enjoy our sport.  If you choose to,  simply  use code RISE2020 before 30 September 2020  at checkout, in the promotional code field. If you haven’t already, there is only 2 weeks left to use this code so make sure you don’t miss out.

If you have any issues with your membership, please do not hesitate to contact the regional office on southwest@englandnetball.co.uk
