Netball is the only female team sport to be covered weekly by Sky Sports. It is no wonder then, that there is such a demand for the sport throughout the country. The Brent netball scene is mainly volunteer organised, with clubs and academies being run by passionate individuals. The area would benefit from some more active and organised netball leagues and clubs. Nevertheless there remains a dedicated and impassioned netball community in the district.
