Our Teams: Join the Netball Wave
Currently, we have adult teams on the Silver Coast, including "The Sirens," and new teams "Leoas of Porto" and "Leoas of Lisbon." In the Algarve, teams thrive in Tavira, Cabanas, Vilamoura, and Lagos, with emerging teams in Almancil and Albufeira. Albufeira urgently seeks a sponsor for a set of netball posts.
Youth Development: Empowering Young Athletes
Our youth teams are on the rise, with Tavira hosting their first training session on October 7th. Noble School in Lagos has also introduced a youth section. We call upon schools, colleges, universities, and parents across Portugal to join us in fostering netball's growth. Let's connect via our website: Netball Portugal.
Supporting Clubs: Growing Together
Netball Portugal stands ready to aid each club's initial setup and provide ongoing support through coaching and umpiring courses.
Volunteer Opportunities: Join Our Team
We are actively recruiting volunteer scouts to help develop netball in Portugal. Tavira's local camera recognizes netball as a sport, offering taster days for adults and youths throughout the year.
Global Reach: Portugal's Netball Aspirations
Netball is played in 72 countries, with the recent World Netball Championship held in Cape Town, South Africa, and televised worldwide. The next World Championships are in 2027 in Sydney, Australia. Netball Portugal aims to create a squad representing Portugal on the global stage, from the World Netball Championships to the Commonwealth Games. It’s been wonderful watching Portugal representation at the Rugby World Cup. Come on everyone let’s do this!
