The Gloucestershire County Netball Association (GCNA) was first set up in 1956, with the aim of setting up a formal structure for netball competition within the county.
We administer netball in Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cirencester, Stroud, The Forest and surrounding areas.
Hucclecote's U16 Panthers team attended the prestigious Gloucestershire Sports Awards last Thursday. They were nominated as finalists in the Junior Team of the Year category.
The awards were presented by the BBC's John Inverdale (pictured) at the Hatherly Manor Hotel. The other nominees in the category were Gloucester Hartpury Junior Women’s Quadruple Scull, Abbeymead Rover Under 12 Reds and Bournside School Year 10 (Under 15 Sports Team).
The team were well represented on the night on a table of nine. Hucclecote coach Gilly Salter said, "The girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were in awe of some of the winners. We didn't win, but being finalists made it very special and we were honoured to be part of such a worthy event. I would like to pass on our thanks to Gloucestershire Netball for their support towards two tickets for the evening."

You may remember the Gloucestershire Netball supported this project for the first time last year. With the food collection date as 5th December at Bentham (all day) could we ask that as many clubs as possible support this!
The County Community Project (CCP) is a charity which helps disadvantaged children, young people, families and vulnerable adults throughout Gloucestershire. Hamper Scamper is CCP’s Christmas-giving scheme, providing gifts and food hampers for those disadvantaged groups.
This year there will be a couple of training balls and a match ball up for grabs to the club that collect the most items divided by their teams, so get donating!

Challengers Rockets took the Gloucestershire Netball Premiership and Division 1 tournament honours for the second year running this Saturday (12th September) at Bentham Country Club.
Dominating their group they scored more than twice as many goals as their opposition in every game. A convincing 11-3 semi-final win over Hucclecote Hurricanes guaranteed them a place in the final. There they faced Hucclecote Lightning, who were fresh from an extra time golden goal victory over Survivors in the other semi-final.
