About Us

Friendly local netball club

The club was formed in 1952 and was one of the first clubs in the Bury St Edmunds area to start offering the opportunity to play netball for local girls.

Although the club was founded in Cockfield village we now train at Culford Sports Centre on the outside courts.

We offer junior and adult training as well as the opportunity to play in winter and summer league matches.

The club has grown from having just two ladies teams in 1957 to now having a  junior section at Under 12 and U14 plus Five adult Netball teams.

Netball Basics

Goal Keeper

The Goal Keeper is the last line of defence. They guard the goal circle and the defensive third and must stop the Goal Shooter from scoring.


Centres are able to move in the whole court, with the exception of the goal circles. They have to help out in defence and attack. Centres also restart the game each time a goal has been scored.

Wing Attack

The Wing Attack is the key playmaker of the netball court. The Wing Attack can move in the attacking and centre third BUT not in the goal circle or the defensive third.

Goal Shooter

The Goal Shooter’s main job is simply to score goals. They are allowed in the attacking third and the goal circle BUT nowhere else on the court.

Goal Defence

The Goal Defence patrols the defensive third, the goal circle and the centre third. Their main job is to stop the opposition from scoring and to get the ball out of the danger area!

Wing Defence

The Wing Defence can go into the centre and defensive thirds, but NOT in the attacking third or the goal circle. Their main job is to stop the ball reaching the opposition’s goal circle.

Goal Attack

The Goal Attack’s primary role is scoring and setting up goals. They can play in the centre third, the attacking third and the goal circle but NOT the defensive third.
