U12, U14 & U16 National Clubs 2022

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May, Wales hosted the U12, U14 & U16 National Clubs competition at House of Sport, Cardiff.


This is the third National Competition we have hosted since COVID restrictions have lifted and it was great to see so many talented athletes and abundance of spectators.


Wales Netball would like to say a huge thank you to all the athletes, parents, spectators, umpires, and volunteers who came to the event.


The prestigious event displayed amazing talent from all involved and we would like to praise all the teams for their performances throughout the competition.
