Goalden Globes

Volunteers are the lifeblood of sport and provide the foundations of our sporting nation. The work of all of our volunteers is greatly appreciated by the Region and England Netball. Throughout the East Region there are a great number of volunteers that help from grassroots to the elite, sharing expertise to help develop Netball within the Region and dedicating hours of time and energy.

This years National Goalden Globe Awards evening will take place on Saturday 17th September. Volunteers from across the country will all come together under one roof for an evening of glitz and glamour to recognise the outstanding contributions that volunteers make to our sport.
