    About Our Members

    Israel

    Although Netball is still virtually unknown in Israel and is still played mainly by ex-pats and their daughters, the number of Israeli players is steadily growing. Since 1999 when a few players got together to play netball on a basketball court in Ra’anana, Israel Netball has chalked up an impressive list of successes in its short history, despite lack of official recognition and lack of resources. These include:

    • Hosting of the hugely successful netball tournaments of the Maccabiah for both junior and senior teams since 2001.
    • Participation in Netball Europe events since 2006 and in the World Youth Championships held in Glasgow in 2013.
    • Certification of umpires and coaches.

    The dedicated efforts of all Israel Netball’s members resulted in the creation of six clubs around the country and a netball league that has celebrated eight seasons. Junior groups (ages 7-15) have been established in Ra’anana and Modi’in with numbers increasing each year.

    Israel Netball is constantly taking steps to raise awareness of the game, and with many ambitious plans waiting to be fulfilled, is looking forward to an increasingly exciting future.
