Match report – 25th February
Hampton A had a convincing win over a young Gems team with a score of 46-17 despite suffering a couple of injuries resulting in playing the 2nd half with only 6 players and having to play with only 5 players on court for a while during the 2nd quarter. It was a good team performance where the key was staying calm and playing our own game.
The B’s had a great win against Surrey Panthers, coming home with a 66-22 victory. Plenty of interceptions and some amazing conversions by our shooters, Emma and Polly, meant they managed to pull away in the first quarter and the whole way through the match. It was great to see a couple of new players join us for their first match to get a taste of what Hampton NC is all about and what a good game to start with.
We are looking for a new coach for our club – we have 2 squads who train together on Thursday evenings at Raynes Park High School and play in the Kingston and Surrey leagues.
We are keen to learn and need a coach who can work with players of all abilities and encourage them to improve and develop.

Match Report – 11th Feb 2017
A great Saturday of matches for HNC this week despite the cold, snowy conditions at Raynes Park.
The B’s played first and had a strong line up against Grasshoppers. A tight first half proved the teams were closely matched however Hampton kept pushing and pulled ahead in the second half. A brilliant whole team performance from defence through to attack gave the B’s a convincing 49-34 win. A great result after loss to Grasshoppers in the first half of the season.
Hampton A then took to the court against Cobham B – matches between these clubs always promise to be competitive and this one didn’t disappoint. Both teams started strongly with Cobham B just taking a lead into the second quarter however Hampton A came back strongly over the next 2 quarters and edged ahead. The final quarter was incredibly close but the support of the B’s on the sideline helped the A’s hold onto their lead and win 57-55.
A great day to be part of Hampton Netball Club 😀
Match report – 4th Feb 2017
Tough matches for our A and B teams in the Kingston Netball League this weekend but two fighting performances.
Our A team had an early start on Saturday for their match against Grasshoppers A. They began strongly in the first half with an impressive display of teamwork coming in at half time with a small but good lead. Unfortunately, Grasshoppers came out faster and stronger in the 2nd half and raced to a convincing win.
Hampton B experienced the same fate against Oxshott A. They started slowly and fell behind but finished the game strongly. Unfortunately they couldn’t quite take the lead in the end but it was a strong performance with some promising play to take into next week.

Congratulations to our A and B teams for fantastic away wins at the weekend in the Surrey Netball League.
Hampton A impressed with a 52-29 win over Whyteleafe – a strong start set the tone for the match and, despite Whyteleafe coming out fighting in the 2nd quarter, Hampton A held their form and extended their lead in the 2nd half.
Hampton B (pictured) had an equally strong performance against Hillcrest D winning with a score of 54-31. Hampton B showed their potential and really started to gel as a team.
After a rocky first quarter, the A’s fought hard but unfortunately lost 37-57 to Capital Nuns.
So we’re testing a few things out. Please be patient.
The annual Hampton Xmas Social took us to Clapham this year with an evening full of fun, cocktails, laughs and 90s / 00s tunes!!
We started the night at Adventure Bar in Clapham with a variety of cocktails and bubbles followed by a trip to Clapham Grand for their Xmas 90s vs 00s night.
Some incredible dance moves were thrown and a couple of celebrities were spotted (although whether they were real or fake remains to be seen!!)…
A brilliant night with an awesome bunch of girls – bring on the next HNC social!!!
