After some fantastic netball fitness and individual skills sessions in the park we will be back on the outdoor courts this week. There will still be individual drills and no shared equipment, each session has been careful planning to make sure we are working within England netball and government guidance.
From the latest updates we are all very excited that here could be light at the end of the tunnel with progress made for grassroots sport to emerge out of lockdown. 🙌🏼

We are looking forward to seeing the Hawks ladies back in action.
Last night as you may have seen, we all received an email from England Netball regarding the current situation with the Coronavirus. England Netball have reviewed the current Government guidelines and have made the decision to suspend all netball activity across the country.
CDNL have further commented on this and have suspended the rest of the winter league and put Summer League and the AGM on hold for the time being, but have promised to get us all back on the courts as soon as they can.
This sadly means that all our training will be immediately suspended until further notice. And we will be putting squad trials and our club AGM on hold until we know more.
We will continue to follow any new guidance from the Government and EN and keep you all informed. But for the meantime stay safe, stay active where possible and we hope to be back on the court all together soon! 💜 🦅
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the committee.
Due to the weather making one of the courts at Milton unplayable Hawks have been busy fitting in rearranged games on some rather cold and drizzly evenings. Hawks 2 kicked off last week with a fantastic 33-21 win against Rockets, with a flying start in Q1 finishing 12-4 and 10 mins of Q2 played with only 6 players due to a blood injury. Hawks 3 played Jets last night finishing 20-39, the result didn’t reflect the match, with some great play from all being built on throughout the game. Well deserve bonus point for getting within half. Well done Ladies!
Good luck to all our Hawks out on the courts this weekend. We have all 3 teams out for matches, lets hope they carry on the success of 2019 with some fantastic results to kickstart 2020!
Training starts back Wednesday 8th January for all @ St Ives Outdoor. Newcomers are welcome so if you have a new years resolution to go from couch to courts or are just looking to be more active and meet some new like minded ladies then get in touch to arrange your taster sessions: http://www.hawksnetball.co.uk/newcomers/
Hawks 1 faced Harriers this Sunday. With a combination of H1 and H2 players the game started strong with a Q1 win for Hawks. A close game followed with some fantastic patience, considered play down the court. The final score sadly didn’t go our way finishing Hawks 46 Harriers 51. But a well deserved bonus point for finishing within 5 and their highest score of the season so far, well done ladies.
After a rocky start Hawks 2 are finally finding their feet, securing 2 solid wins and some promising progressive play in their last 3 games. We hope to see them continue to climb the rankings to start the second stage of games out of the danger zone.
Hawks 3 have had an impressive start securing 4th place in Division 4. Our Hawks Newcomers have made a fantastic addition to the team and we hope to see them continue to go from strength to strength.
Over in CCNA Hawks 1 have been struggling with a string of players having to take time out due to injury. We wish them a speedy recovery and will be cheering on all the Hawks 2 and 3 players playing up in the premier league to supporting the team.
Hawks 2 started the weekend well with a fantastic 36-31 win over Ely 1. Congratulations to POM Sam Hastings (WD). Hawks 3 missed out on a win by the smallest of margins losing 27-28 to Cojags 5. Congratulations to POM Emma-Jane Buck (C) and to the team the bonus point. Hawks 1’s bad luck continues with a loss to Cherries and another injury for the team. Wishing them lots of good luck against Rookies on 10th.
Last night we entered a mixed team of Hawks 2 and 3 into City of Ely’s Children in Need Tournament along with 11 other teams. £358 was raised for charity….and we WON!!!
Absolutely smashing performance from all the girls! All the strategy work we have been doing at training was really put into practice. You did Hawks very proud! ….More chocs to add to the CDNL Quiz Night winning stash to share out at training this week.
We are very excited to announce that we have a Sport Massage Therapist joining Hawks Netball Club.

She will work along side players to make sure we are all in top shape and performing our best on the court. Welcome to Hawks Jo!
