netballers jump for the ball
Launched at the 2023 Netball World Cup in Cape Town, South Africa, the World Netball Foundation has been established to deliver on World Netball’s strategic pillar “To inspire - harnessing the power of netball to change lives”.

Launched at the Netball World Cup 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa, the World Netball Foundation has been established to deliver on World Netball’s (WN’s) strategic pillar “To inspire - harnessing the power of netball to change lives”.

With an over-arching vision of creating new possibilities through netball, the World Netball Foundation uses the reach of netball to deliver positive and lasting outcomes via three core, inter-linked strategies: 

  • Individuals: We will create programmes and initiatives which give diverse people opportunities to access new learning and personal development experiences which will positively impact their lives.
  • Communities: We will create supportive and inclusive netball spaces where everyone belongs, their opinion matters, and they feel valued by coaches, mentors, and peers.
  • Societies: We will create alliances with like-minded partners, collaborating to achieve greater impact in developing and supporting global policies for achieving societal change through sport.

The World Netball Foundation endeavours to work with purpose in activating the most promising ideas to maximise impact, investing in programmes that combine sport and social change elements and can be effectively managed locally.

At an early stage of the World Netball Foundation’s formation, a primary objective is to partner with one or several academic institutions in:

  • Leveraging best practice and in turn maximising impact: Enabled by access to academic experts and researchers who are active in the field of sport for development.
  • Accessing global relationships: Providing opportunities to expand our partner ecosystem for enhanced benefits.
  • Engaging in joint research: To break new ground in the field of sport for development research and in turn be recognised as an organisation that is working to set new standards for charitable impact.
  • Gain access to high calibre students: Who are excited to support the operation of an organisation that wants to make a real difference, whilst gaining valuable work experience, practical experience for coursework and the opportunity to build networks.

The World Netball Foundation will be formally launching a call for Expressions of Interest on Monday 15th  January 2024 and is doing this pre-announcement so that interested academic institutions can pre-register their interest at [email protected]
