Netball East Region is one of 9 Regions within England Netball. Each region has an elected volunteer regional management board and a regional unit with paid staff comprising a Regional Manager and a Regional Co-ordinator
The East Region is made up of the seven netballing counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Essex, Essex Thurrock, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Each County has their own volunteer County Committee and a paid Netball Development Officer.
Netball East is governed by the Regional Management Board (RMB) which includes the Regional Chair, Regional Treasurer, the Chair from each of the Technical Support Group’s (TSG) which include Competition, Coaching, Finance, Officiating, Performance and Membership and the Hertfordshire Mavericks Superleague Director.
The Regional Manager is Sarah Beattie and the Regional Co-ordinator is Florrie Jones. Working alongside our elected Regional Management Board and County Committees, we develop and facilitate the delivery of all aspects of netball within the region.
England Netball employ a Regional Manager and a Regional Coordinator to support the RMB and the development programmes in the East. Part time Netball Development Officers are also employed in each county to work closely alongside the County Netball Associations, Schools, CSP's and other partners. Netball East also has a full time Performance Pathway Coach and full time Netball Development Community Coach working in Hertfordshire developing Back to Netball.
