Who Plays Netball?

Believe it or not, netball actually began here in the United States in 1895 as a version of women’s basketball. Today, netball is played in over 72 countries by over 20 million people, from as far and wide as Australia and the Pacific, the United Kingdom to Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. It has also grown to be the most popular women’s team sport in the world. Its growing popularity was reflected when netball became an officially recognized sport of the Olympics at the 2004 Athens games.

Parks & Rec

We’re lucky enough to have the support of the Los Angeles County Parks & Rec, who have kindly helped bring our two multi-purpose courts to fruition here at Victoria Park in Carson. They’ve been true champions of the sport and our club.

Through that partnership we host four free kids’ clinics throughout the year to help grow the sport locally, and our U18 program on the club level, while also providing another sport option to the young people in our community.
