Southwell's superb netballers have enjoyed tremendous success with their stunning shooting, precise passing and deft defending.

Southwell Supremes started the Two Counties league in Nottingham in September and have won nine out of their 10 games so far. They are currently top of the league with a healthy goal difference and are looking to retain the title as number one again this season.

Meanwhile, it's been a mixed 12 months for Southwell Sirens. An initial promotion to the Monday Night League First Division was sadly followed by a return to the Second. However, a promising start to the new season sees Sirens already topping the Second Division. Well done ladies!

The club's newest team, Southwell Swifts, have seen a huge improvement over the course of the year. Whilst they previously sat at the bottom of Division Three in the Monday night league, this season sees them climb to the middle of the table. Swifts are also currently unbeaten in the 'I Heart Netball league' as well as winners of two charity tournaments over the Summer. The girls are looking forward to building on their success in the new year.
