Millfield Netball encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to experience, enjoy and compete in netball. Twelve teams operate in total, so there are plenty of opportunities for players to compete against schools, colleges, universities and clubs.
Netball for Years 9-10 runs as a games option during the spring term, and they can access netball in the autumn term as a club; squad sessions are also available. Year 11 and Sixth Form girls can choose to play netball during both terms. Year 10 pupils can request to play netball for both terms if they are in the performance pathway.
Millfield has strong links with a number of Superleague franchises with athletes playing at U17, U19 and U21 NPL level.
