Westmorland Wanderers is a netball team based in the Eden Valley, Cumbria. We currently have over 80 members ranging in ages from 10yrs -40 something!! We are based at Appleby sports Centre but also utilise the training venue at Kirkby Stephen Grammar school.
We are the first club in cumbria to obtain a silver award from all england netball as our club is constantly developing coaches and umpires. We currently have 4 level 2 coaches 2 level one coaches and two senior coaches working towards their level 3 award. We have numerous junior players who assist with coaching to help them gain young leadership awards.
Our senior coaches are also strongly linked to cumbria netball academy and east cumbria satellite academy as we are lucky enough to have Helen Paul who is also the head coach for cumbria.
Numerous players compete at regional and national levels and our biggest success so far is to have had Courtney Savage gain a place on the England Under 19 squad for 2012-2013.
Last year several members of our squad were selected to play in the National Clubs finals and we currently have two players in the North West Regional Development squads whom hope to achieve a place in Regional squad and in Manchester Thunder NTL squad.
We have strong links with many other successful/larger clubs that allow us to develop our coaching staff and players to help them improve their skill. We have remained undefeated in cumbria for the past 10 years as a team and now continuously seek competition both in and out of the county to allow the development of our squads.
