Join the Club

It’s great that you’re interested in getting involved! Here is the essential information you’ll need to know to join HNC.


Thursdays 7.30pm-9.00pm indoors at Battersea Ironsides Sports Centre.

Training takes place outdoors throughout Spring and Summer and inside during the Winter months.

We have a training break at the end of the netball season. Typically this is from May to the beginning of July. Never fear though, we still get our netball fix through a mixture of tournaments and the Summer League.


Battersea Ironsides Sports Centre, Burntwood Lane, London, SW17 0AW


Each team plays every Saturday morning, in the Kingston and Surrey Leagues on alternate weeks. The season is divided into two halves:

  • Early September – Early December
  • Early January – Early April

Fixtures are not released until just before the season begins. Each team is played twice over the year, once on our home ground and once on the opposing team’s home ground in and around Kingston/Surrey. Lots of the players will lift-share.


Further information about prices can be found here.

How do I join?

To join, all you need to do is get in touch with our lovely Recruitment Secretary, Georgia, by messaging here. Your first session is free to help you decide whether you’d like to join – all you need is a bottle of water! Trials typically take place in July to allow time for training before the season starts.

2021/22 Trial Dates

We usually have trials around the Christmas period (if teams are short after the first half of the season) and in July, which are the main annual trials before the new season begins. Trials this year will be held on the 15th July and 5th August at Battersea Ironsides Sports Club, SW17 0AW. To sign up, please fill in this form:

Please note: if you are joining mid-season, we cannot guarantee you will be given a position in a team straight away. However, you’re more than welcome to start training with us at any time! We usually recommend that players turn up to four sessions to meet everyone, see how they like the club (we’re sure you’ll love it!) and then our nominated Selection Committee makes a decision depending on the availability and needs of the teams.
