Nothing But Netball (NBN) is bring back the fun into netball. NBN is a netball academy that was found in 2021 by two local East London players with an avid love and passion for Netball. The founders Tammy-Leigh Jonas and Sanelisiwe Mahlangeni said the academy was created to instil a passion in young players to improve their skills and receive coaching and time on a more one on one scale so players can improve their skills individually.
A gap was identified transitioning from junior players and aspiring to be 1st team level player. After 1st team level, players could possibly receive bursaries into the Universities of their choice if they play at an advanced level. By starting this academy Jonas and Mahlangeni hoped to bridge this gap and boost the confidence of young players and increasing their skills and fitness abilities. They offer conditioning, one on one sessions , fitness drills , fitness test, Skill specific drills, Friendly matches, Physio assessment and T- shirt upon confirmed sign up.
Sessions will be offered twice a week on the following days and times:
- Wednesdays 16:30 – 18:30
- Sundays 10:00am – 12:00pm
NBN is targeting schools and areas in and around East London and learners who have been exposed to the netball field. As the academy grows, they hope to target schools that are lacking in this field and assist with boosting netball in their respective areas. They also intend to offer coaching and training clinics to schools lacking resources and skilled netball umpires and coaches. All Covid Protocols will be followed.
