League Matches  

Israel Netball proudly announced the launch of its league in 2009. At the time there were five teams playing: Modi'in, Ra'anana, Jerusalem Mercaz and the then newly established teams from Ma'aleh Adumim (Jtown) and Tel Aviv. At the beginning of the 2012/2013 season, a group of youngsters from Katamon also signed on. Katamon continued playing for another couple of years but eventually disbanded at the end of the 2015/2016 season. We were joined by Kfar Etzion at the beginning of the 2016/2017 season and Givat Washington became our seventh team the following year. 

Easily accessible for the other teams, most of the league matches are played at the indoor court in Modi'in.

As anticipated, the improvement in match play has been extraordinary.

Season 2019/2020 saw the introduction of a junior league which boasts many Israeli-born youngsters aged 13-15 who only a short time ago had never heard of netball let alone played it!

Covid-19 interrupted play in 2020 but we're back now and this season's Senior league with 8 teams began in October while the Junior league is about to commence.

Good luck to all the teams!
