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.
Want to stay up to date with netball in Gloucestershire? Why not sign up to our monthly newsletter, for news, important dates, Back to Netball, adult and junior workshops, and coaching and umpiring courses.
Do you help run your club, or are you a coach or umpire?
We are holding a start of season "drop in" evening on Thursday 4th September, at Bentham in the Function Room. We will be there from 7pm until 9.30pm, and complementary drinks will be available!
This is an informal get-together for teams, umpires and coaches where we can discuss any issues, give you information that will help for the coming season and you can ask us any questions.
A number of management group and working group members will be present to answer your questions you may have about the rules, umpiring qualifications, coaching resources, MyNet, the Bateman/Per Ardua competition, Tournaments, as well as checking that your club details are up to date.
We will also have some of our highest qualified coaches and umpires there, so encourage you to attend!
Hope to see you there!
