Netball

Langton Green Netball Club was formed in 1999 by Kathy Smith and Julie Mesher.

When the club was first formed, it had just two teams and trained at Langton Green Primary School. Over the years LGNC has grown in size and strength and now has a membership of more than 200 girls ranging from years three to thirteen and draws on members from Tunbridge Wells and beyond.

The club is now overseen by Laura Kerr-Sheppard, a UKCC Level 2 netball coach and B award umpire, along with a strong team of coaches. Everyone involved in the club, whether it be the coaches or admin support, are volunteers. We are always looking for helpers at LGNC, if you feel you can assist in any way please contact us.

Recently the club have been fortunate enough to be nominated for the following awards:

  • Love Where We Live Awards 2014; Sports Achiever of the Year finalist
