Wow, what a year 2017 was for Amsterdam Netball!
Our club has grown so much since we officially started in 2015, and we can’t help but be proud of the amazing crew we managed to build up through the years. We participated in three tournaments (one being the very first Netball tournament hosted by us on Dutch soil!) and managed to place top three in each of them! Memberships increased and we saw an amazing base of talented players for the core of our Netball group. They help inspire and lead the way for the next generation of Dutch Netballers!
Now, for some of the highlights of 2017:
– The start of Utrecht Netball club and our monthly games!
– 2 away tournaments in Copenhagen and Toulouse
– Our own awesome Amsterdam Tournament
– 2nd set of poles and all new bags and equipment
– A record number of new members joining
– 2 training sessions by the lovely Emma from the UK
– A new set of awesome Uniforms
– A very successful fundraising Pub Quiz night
– The setup of a professional T-Shirt printing sweatshop
A big thanks to all the members for helping out with all the organizing of everything, we couldn’t do this without you.
For 2018 we have some big plans. There is more budget for Court hire on the bigger courts and a small travel budget for the away tournaments. We are also planning on keeping up the professional trainings and holding them on a regular basis.
We decided that for 2018 we are only offering 6 months or yearly memberships. This helps reduce the admin and have more time to organize cool stuff.
We are looking forward to seeing what 2018 holds for us. But for now, we love looking back on some of the memories of last year.
Thanks so much to everyone who helped, supported and cheered us on in 2017 (parents, kids, spouses) we couldn’t have done it without you.
Much love from the board,
Tania,Nadine and Delle
