Back in 2021, James (our founder) realised that there wasnt currently a netball club for the LGBTQIA+ Community that was available for all genders. Having been a member of London Frontrunners, and with friends in LGBTQIA+ clubs for other sports, James knew the importance and benefit of creating a safe and inclusive environment for these communities to play sport.
So, with the help of his teammates Louise and Clare and with Knights Men's and Mixed Netball, he organised our first ever friendly session open to all in October 2021. Since then, we have seen the committee, and our club continue to grow, in numbers and in netball opportunities, to become the Unicorns LGBTQIA+ netball club you see today!
Our aim is to make netball more accessible to everyone, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation or skill level. So, whether you just want to give netball a try, haven’t played since school, play regularly at social level, or are an internationl superstar, you’ve come to the right place! This group is an inclusive safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and our allies to join together and play netball!
