James formed Unicorns in 2021 when he realised there was no fully inclusive netball club for the LGBTQIA+ Community. Having been a member of London Frontrunners, and with friends in LGBTQIA+ clubs for other sports, James realised the importance and benefit of creating a safe and inclusive environment for these communities to play sport. James asked his team mates Clare and Louise to help him get it off the ground, and with the help of our friends at Knights Men's and Mixed Netball, we held our first friendly session open to all in October 2021. Since then our committee has grown to include Al, Vanessa, Calvin and Nikki, and we're building partnerships with other LGBTQIA+ organisations.
Our aim is to make netball more accessible to everyone, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation or skill level. So, whether you haven’t played since school, play regularly at social level, or just want to give netball a try, you’ve come to the right place. This group is an inclusive safe space for all members of the LGBTQ+ community, and our allies.
