Rhosnesni Netball Club Wins Wrexham County Borough Sport Award

Welsh Netball was pleased to hear that Rhosnesni Netball Club, now in its 12th year, won Organisation of the Year at the 2018 Wrexham County Borough Sports Awards. Rhosnesni NC beat competition from across the county with the five shortlisted organisations including football, swimming and gymnastics. 

Rhosnesni NC is run by passionate and enthusiastic volunteers and has grown rapidly over the last few years. In 2017 the club spent time mentoring new volunteers and ensuring that all had the opportunity to attend coach / umpire courses. They also mentored junior members as they attended their Netball Leaders Award and completed volunteering hours at the club. Rhosnesni NC has also started a tots section in 2017 and had success at Regional and National Club Competitions. Finally, the club has also collected the InSport Ribbon Award and offers fully inclusive opportunities. 

Sue Williams, Chair & Head Coach since 2006, summed up the club’s excitement at winning the award. She said: “We are so proud as a club to receive this award, we all put in so much time to ensure we give as many players an opportunity to play as possible. I’m particularly proud of how friendly our club is, we welcome all players new and old, experienced or not. Our club ethos is to ensure everyone enjoys playing – win or lose.

She added: “We have a fantastic group of volunteers, most of whom are mums and have gained coaching qualifications with no previous netball background. Rhosnesni NC is our family, with great friendships and this award is to say thank you to everyone for their hard work and commitment.”
