1. Fighting Gender Inequality and creating opportunitiesfor Girls and women
Rhondda Netball places a strong emphasis on equal opportunities and has no restrictions on male or female involvement but naturally, more females take part in Rhondda Netball than males. We’re breaking down these aforementioned barriers and our focused “everyday” approach gives us an ongoing voice so that we can fight for equality.Rhondda Netball is working diligently to create equal opportunities for the girls and women of Rhondda, particularly in the areas of sport and recreation.Becoming Wales’ largest female sports participation initiative, it’s obvious that we’ve met a NEED in our community for girls & women!
2. Supporting Mental health & Improving emotional well-being
1 in 4 people have a mental health problem in the UK, with 1 in 6 experiencing at least one common mental health problem such as stress or depression in any given week. Rhondda Netball recognises the need to address these issues and where possible, mitigate them by encouraging participants to be socially included, physically active, motivated and engaged.Rhondda Netball has been a catalyst for change in our region, helping to provide platforms for physical activity to take place and there are now a lot more females feeling that all-important sense of belonging we’ve worked hard to create, with new friendship circles being established and communities brought together.

Our Key Leaders are excellent role models who play a vital part in us meeting this objective with so many girls under their guidance.Our committed every-day approach takes an active role in sending the “right” messages. We’re showing girls and women that being active and committing to weekly physical activity is important.Statistics show there’s already been a 25% increase in female sport participation for ages 5-15 across Rhondda since Rhondda Netball started.
