Your guide on where to play, coach, umpire, volunteer.


Netball New Zealand is delighted to announce that Cadbury has come on board as our Official Volunteer Partner. Cadbury is super passionate about the powerful role that grass roots sports plays in our community and together we want to ensure that the future of Netball remains strong. Our partnership is built to recognise, reward, inspire and recruit new volunteers to our sport by shining a light on those netball volunteer champions who have helped build and nurture our netball communities and participants.

NNZ have employed a Volunteer Advocacy Coordinator (VAC) to manage the Volunteer Programme, starting with the development of a robust strategy for our Centres. If you would like to get a hold of our VAC, please contact

What do Netball Volunteers do?

Many volunteers coach, manage or umpire for a Club or School team. Other volunteers are involved in running our sport by working in administrative or governance roles. Others are involved in specific projects or helping out with one-off events or tournaments.
