Stanmore hosts Hyderi
28th April 2019
On the evening of Sunday 28th April, Stanmore Jaffery’s hosted a friendly social netball session with their lovely neighbours Hyderi. Each jamaat brought in two teams, and they played each other over 2 hours. The games were exciting to watch, with talent shining on both sides!
The Stanmore and Hyderi girls mingled well, bonding over pizza, hot chocolate, fruit and other snacks! The night certainly promoted inter-jamaat friendships, and we pray to have many more opportunities like this, where netball brings our communities together, creating unity.

Girls Netball Camp
29-30 Oct 2019
On Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th Oct, we held our first SJ Girls Netball Camp.
21 girls between years 5 and 9 enjoyed 6 hours of focussed training, fun drills and competitive games led by our coach Kay Bladon. The girls improved immensely over the course of the 2 days and it was a joy to watch them implement all the skills they had learnt.
Talking to the girls, they all commented on how much they enjoyed the camp and the opportunity to play with their friends while still training.
A special mention to Zainab Fatima Merali, Ilhaam Pirbhai, Khadija Kanani and Aaminah Dewji for receiving best player awards over the 2 days.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Neomedic for sponsoring this camp.
Girls Netball Camp
18-19 Feb 2020
During the half term SJ Ladies arranged netball coaching for the girls. For 2 days from 9am to 3pm, girls in school years 4 to 10 were trained on tactical work, drills and game play.
On Tuesday 18th February, the day was spent on attacking drills. Some of the most effective drills were set plays which focus on getting the ball into the D. Games such as ‘killer’ and ‘netball rounders’ helped to practice shooting in a fun way!
On Wednesday 19th February coaching was focused on defensive play. The coach taught the girls the ‘side on’ defensive position which allowed players to get the ball more often when being closely marked by the opposition.
Each of the sessions ended in seven a side matches. Girls rotated positions to practice versatility, which allowed everyone to play their preferred position as well as to practice the skills they had learnt throughout the sessions.
Thank you, in particular, to Kay Bladon, our amazing coach!
