About & Our Philosophy

About Us

Ivanhoe Netball Club (INC) is a dynamic and welcoming club in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, playing in both junior and senior competitions throughout the week.

INC was formed in late 2009 by local parents to fill a gap in the local junior netball scene. In February 2010 our first teams took to the court in the Banyule & District Netball Association’s Saturday competition. Since then, INC has grown to be the largest club in the BDNA competition, with teams in every grade from 9U to 17U, on both Saturday daytime and Tuesday and Thursday night competitions. We also have several senior teams who play in various competitions throughout the week.

Our aim is for children to develop a true passion for the game, and keep as many players on the court, loving netball, for as long as possible.

While our mantra is FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND FITNESS, we are also fast developing into a strong club with many teams regularly making finals in their respective competitions.

Whether you are looking to join a team or you are a current player, team manager or coach, we hope you find everything on this website to answer any questions you may have about INC.

If you still have a query and would like someone to talk to, please send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
