Crystal Palace Netball Club’s Juniors aims to identify budding netball talent and nurture a lifelong love of the game. We offer a fun, caring environment where girls can develop their netball skills to a high level whilst making new friendships.
With a team of committed coaches and a successful Senior Club, we provide strong role models for our younger players with the potential to progress to the Senior Club in the future.
Both my girls love being part of CPNC — seeing all the girls develop over the last year has been wonderful to watch and having such an amazing senior team is a real inspiration for all juniors. The U14s are a great bunch of girls and it is really lovely to see my daughter be herself and at ease within the team."
