Doncaster Rebels Netball Club

Established in 2013, the club aims to inspire and empower women through netball, social and community projects. But, after a string of national lockdowns that prevented close-contact sports clubs from getting together, the future of the club looked uncertain.

Natalie Buckley, Club Chair and Head of HR at SYNETIQ said:

“For many club members before COVID, netball was a 4-day a week hobby. During the height of the pandemic, when we were unable to train and couldn’t spend that quality hour for the game with our netball friends and family, it took a toll on our members’ mental health.”

With a £500 donation from SYNETIQ, outdoor court space loaned by Hall Cross Academy and in line with England Netball and government guidance on social distancing and club sports, the club has been able to host a COVID-safe tournament to celebrate their return to the game and relaunch the Junior coaching sessions. To adapt to government guidance, the club purchased extra kit and sanitisation products to ensure complete adherence to the new rules, as well as renewing their insurance policy.

In partnership with England Netball’s “Rise Again” campaign, the funds also contributed towards the coaching qualification cost for a new Juniors Coach for the club, who volunteers to help junior members develop socially and physically in their chosen sport.

The club, based near SYNETIQ’s Doncaster headquarters, was brought to the company’s attention by Club Chair and SYNETIQ’s Head of HR, Natalie Buckley. It is one of many organisations in SYNETIQ’s operational areas to benefit from the business’s Colleague and Community forum.

As part of a wide-reaching program of corporate social responsibility activity, the forum offers an opportunity for employees to put forward their ideas and vote on how best to support the causes and charities in their local communities.

The Doncaster Rebels Netball Club are always looking for players of all ages.
