West Midlands sports club nets brand new kit!

West Midlands sports club nets brand new kit!

A netball club from West Bromwich has scored a brand new kit thanks to a donation from a unique sporting campaign.

Midrange Netball Club, who train at the George Salter Academy, has received the fully bespoke kit worth £750 from the 2019 GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, which aims to provide support to help sports teams and clubs achieve their aspirations.

Initially founded over 20 years ago by a group of women that enjoyed playing the sport, Midrange Netball Club officially formed in 2009 after merging with other teams in order to be able to enter the West Midlands Regional League. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength and now has over 100 women members and over 60 junior members, consisting of five ladies’ teams and four junior teams. The club applied to the Grassroots Campaign for funding to help provide the junior section with playing dresses.

Sally-Ann Chambers from Midrange Netball Club, said: “The community in which we train and our members come from, is not the most affluent and we don’t want to stop people playing because they don’t have the correct kit. We received funding for £750 which was absolutely tremendous and allowed us to order 14 netball dresses and a set of playing bibs for our girls’ team, which not only meant everyone could take part, but it also really helped us stand out from the crowd too!

“We were all involved in the kit design, and the girls I worked with helped me to get a design that was close to our club look. The dresses are awesome, and the GFORCE sales team were fantastic in helping me with the order and sent me various designs to have a look at.

“We have a number of dedicated volunteers that help the club run so it really is a team effort, and everyone involved is overwhelmed and amazed that such generosity can be forthcoming from a major kit supplier.”

After three successful years of the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, a total of £15,000 has been donated to clubs and teams across the Midlands so far. For 2019, the company set aside an additional pot of £5,000 to help provide kit to clubs in this region and reinforcing the brands commitment to grassroots sport.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE Sportswear, said “The GFORCE Grassroots campaign exists to reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the Midlands just like Midrange Netball Club. The team look great in their new kit and we are really pleased that they have gone down so well. We wish them the very best for the future.

“Our company has a proud history of supporting the local community and we are so pleased to be able to help local sports clubs in this way.”
