Jersey Netball will continue to use Les Ormes for a further year after reaching an agreement with the site’s owners, The Bosdet Foundation.

The Association had been set to lose its playing base next spring after ten years and has been searching for a permanent facility to secure its future.

It says it hopes the extension will give it time to continue fundraising towards a new home to house what is the most popular female sport in the island.

Jersey Netball, spearheaded by elite side Team Jets, have been lobbying the States for support after it became clear it was facing a funding shortfall and an uncertain future locally.

The Association on behalf if all its members would like to thank Mike Graham for this fantastic news which allows us further time to fundraise and find a solution so that we can maintain and even extend our netball programme which currently gives netballers of all ages from 4 to 84 the chance to take to the court.
