England Netball has launched its #RiseAgain campaign to create a movement and enourage people to help safeguard netball’s future in England.
The orginsation has submitted to government an action plan for netball’s return and waiting for the green light to allow players to step back out on court and play netball again.
Its membership window opens for 2020/21 on Monday and fans are being encouraged to pledge, or re-pledge, their allegiance to netball by procuring member status.
England Netball is offering those who have suffered financial hardship a 30 per cent discount. However, it is asking anyone who can afford to pledge the full price of membership to do so.
Individuals who pay the full membership fee between August 3 and September 30 will have their names printed on the court at the Vitality Roses’ next home international series.
