The genesis of the MCC Netball Section was the formation of teams to play against the visiting Hong Kong Cricket Club Netball Section in 2011. An immediate success, the idea of MCC teams playing in formal competition quickly developed.Initially a special interest group, three MCC teams entered the Parkville Netball Competitions enjoying immediate success by winning the 2011 Monday night open A1 premiership in their inaugural season.
Netball’s place within the MCC was recognised when granted Sporting Section status in 2013. The number of teams soon grew to five and in the spring of 2014, an undefeated season by the MCC1 side was capped off with the Premier Open Division 3 title.
The teams compete in the Parkville Netball Competitions at the State Netball and Hockey Centre and are led by the club's head coach, Heather Dawkins, supported by three assistant coaches.
Our top two teams play in Premier divisions on Tuesday evenings whilst the other three compete in Monday night open grades. Trainings are held each Thursday evening at Genazzano FCJ College, Kew.
The MCC Netball committee strives to create a culture that prioritises player development and enjoyment, encouraging all members to engage with the club and its own development.
The club also provides opportunities for players to connect socially via a busy event calendar, including both netball specific activities and wider MCC Sporting Section events.
