Netball and the Club

How do I become a member?
You can find our membership form here.

Who can play?
Anyone 18 years and older, please contact us if you are under 18 and want to play. All genders are welcome in the club. 

Do I need to know how to play before?
No! Anyone with any or no experience is welcome.

Where are you playing? 
We alternate between Malmö and Lund and try to spread out our activities equally over the year. However, this is subject to availability of a hall so we plan which city to be in depending on availability. 

Is it inside or outside? 
When the weather is nicer over summer and early autumn we play outside, providing it's not raining. 

Do I need to do anything before coming to play?
No, you are welcome to message us beforehand, so we know that an extra person is coming for the games. Just make sure you have your shoes, clothes, short nails (if you hold up your hands and we can see your nails they are too long) and no jewellery (rings, piercings, necklaces, bracelets and anything else like watches and fitbits etc).

Does my height matter?
No. Learn to work any height to your advantage, it is part of the fun.

Does it cost anything? 
Your first two sessions are free of charge. If you would like to join the club after that then our fee structure is as follows:

The base fee for joining the club is 200SEK for the year. 100SEK goes to Netball Sweden to pay for your insurance and an affiliation fee to Sweden Netball. The remaining 100SEK is a membership fee to Skåne Netball Club. This is payable once a year before your third session. Sweden Netball Club arranges our insurance, joint events and fundraising with all Swedish club. They are responsible for liaising with Netball Europe, supporting club with media, and providing free help and base equipment for new clubs across Sweden as well as supporting the start of Swedish league events so it's a very important partnership for us. 

Each term there is also a playing fee which covers, for example, the hall hire, equipment, contributions towards open days, prizes or giveaways to club members, and possible subsidisation for competitions, courses or travel to games. It may include some or all of these examples, or other costs which appear through the year. This fee is payable twice a year - Spring term and Autumn term. For 2024 the fee is 500kr a term although some concessions are listed in out membership fee. 

If you would like to join as a member but aren't sure if you'll play this term or next term you can pay the annual membership fee and top up with the term fees or a klippkort (five sessions to use any time in current year).
We are pleased to offer a reduce rate to students and even partner clubs. As of yet this discount is available to the Malmö AFL team but can be expanded to other clubs who we form a partnership with. Speak to the treasurer about possible partnerships. 

Finally we understand that it can be hard to pay fees for any number of reasons. If you would like to play but feel that the fee is prohibitive then please send in a form and contact us to discuss either a payment plan or a possible reduced fee. Sports should be accessible to all and offers an important social forum so we don't want anyone to feel excluded.

In total, for a standard membership, the fee is 1200SEK. If you would like to pay for the whole year upfront then let us know. If you need a receipt you can also drop us an email.
