Net2019: Netball World Cup 2019 Legacy Project
The Net2019 legacy programme was developed as a three year initiative funded by UK Sport and delivered by England Netball in partnership with World Netball.
Zambia and Argentina were the two countries selected to be involved. The two downloadable case studies as part of this insight will look at the progress made within Zambia and Argentina since the Net2019 project began, as well as the impact the projects are continuing to have on the countries.
Net2019 is the Netball World Cup 2019 Legacy project, which was funded by UK Sport, and delivered by England Netball in partnership with the World Netball.
The mission of Net2019 was to empower women and girls through the power of netball and the legacy of the Netball World Cup 2019.
The ambition was global, but with particular emphasis on two key territories, Africa, and South America – areas where netball is rapidly gaining influence and is demonstrably becoming a force for good.
The Netball World Cup 2019 was hosted in Liverpool, England in July 2019 and in the three-years leading up to the competition, Net2019 focused its work in Zambia and Argentina.
It worked with each of the country’s netball associations to develop the provision of netball at grassroots level, whilst supporting each in their development of talent and high performance – proven to stimulate interest, raise profile and influence, and provide powerful role models.
This has been clear in both Zambia and Argentina and the impacts of the legacy programme are still being seen now three years after the Netball World Cup Liverpool 2019.
Notable successes from the programme include:
- Establishing sustainable governance structure for netball in Zambia
- Community Hub Site model for team sports in Zambia
- Sustainable coach development pathways in Argentina
- Creating a South American hub for regional development
