Back to Netball Project Win National Lottery Best Sports Project 2012
England Netball's Back to Netball initiative has won the National Lottery Award in the Best Sports Project category. Over 500 schemes were nominated.
The Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they recognise and celebrate the difference that Lottery-funded projects make to communities across the UK. Back to Netball has been a fantastic success and we have welcomed over 22,000 women back into our wonderful game since it’s national implementation in 2010. Since the start of the Active Women project, 4,752 women from deprived areas and/or caring for children U16 have come Back to Netball. There are countless case studies that highlight the impact that Back to Netball has had on the lives of local women including overcoming adversity, weight loss, reuniting communities after the riots and mentoring young people through qualifications that has led to longer term employment.
