ROCHDALE JUNIOR NETBALL CLUB was established in 1992 with 2 coaches and 1 team of girls. The first team was formed to represent Rochdale in the Greater Manchester Youth Games. Every year since then we have carried out trials for under 9's, under 10's and 11's and since 2017 under 8's. The intake is from Heywood, Middleton, Milnrow, and Littleborough as well as Rochdale, in fact, our doors are open to anyone within the Greater Manchester area.
Teams range from under 8's to under 16's where we have 14 teams playing in junior Bury Netball league. Girls who wish to are encouraged to go on umpiring and coaching courses. We want to encourage them to participate in these areas and to enhance their sports education.
