About Us

The club has been going for over 16 years. It was founded by former employees of Bristol & West Building Society, who wanted to get fit, have fun and play competitive netball. In 2007 the Club merged with the like-minded club, Blackthorn, which was largely made up of employees from Bond Pearce Solicitors in Bristol. Since then the membership of the Club has diversified, and, whilst the Club maintains its strong name and heritage, its players and coaches work in various industries across the full geography of Bristol and beyond. 

The mission of the Club is to provide a fun, vibrant and competitive atmosphere where members of all ages and backgrounds can play and be involved in netball. 

Bristol & West currently has three teams competing in the Avon Netball League. The A team plays in Division 4, the B team plays in Division 7, and our new C team will play in Division 8. You can find out more about our divisions, matches and venues in the Teams, Fixtures & Results section. 

The Club develops its players, and a number of members have successfully completed the England Netball Coaching and Umpiring qualifications.
