Netball at Malvern

Facilities for Netball at Malvern College allow pupils of all abilities to develop their own personal skills at recreational (PE lessons) or team level (Games time).

Provision for netball at Malvern College is outstanding. As part of our aim to increase the opportunity for College students to play netball outside of school and progress through the England performance pathway, we have developed a link with Worcester NC. Through the club, players gain the opportunity to be nominated for the County Academy and Severn Stars U17 & U19 performance pathway programs (dependent on age/ ability). We currently have several players attending county academy and the Severn Stars U17 program as a result of this link.

In school time, elite players have access to one to one coaching sessions, two S&C sessions per week and one to one meetings to discuss time management, nutrition, target setting and lifestyle guidance.

I am an enthusiastic, passionate UKCC level 2 Netball Coach, Player and Sports Therapist. I started playing netball at my local club at the age of 7, selected for County at U14/U16s and U18s West Midlands Regional Squad whilst studying Sports Coaching at Hartpury College and playing in their first team on a netball scholarship.

Whilst studying at Worcester University I played first team competitive netball. One of my greatest achievements was to have represented England at the World University Netball Championships in 2016 held in Miami and played against world class players from Australia, Jamaica and South Africa.

I am currently playing for Worcester Reds in National Premier League 2.

As a qualified Sports Therapist I have worked with Birmingham City Ladies FC, Shrewsbury Town FC, Swiss Netball U17s, England over 35 Hockey, Valencia Basketball and Worcester Worriers.

I have enjoyed my past 3 years as a coach here at Malvern College, as Head of Netball & Girls Tennis I am confident that all girls will have the opportunity to develop their skills and gain success whether county trials, school team selection or individual improvement and enjoyment. I strongly believe that everyone should participate, find their passion for sport and embrace being part of the Malvern College’s sports family. 

Netball Coach: Rhian Jenkins

I am currently completing my UKCC L3 in Netball and Head Coach of Severn Stars U21, who are an amazingly talented group and should be the target for our talented girls here at Malvern. I started coaching at Exeter Netball Club whilst studying Sports Science at the University of Exeter. From September 2011 I worked as a Netball intern at Millfield school. More recently I have coached Gloucestershire County academy and the South West Regional Academy (Glos), as well as Old Chelts club. I have worked at Malvern College since 2012 and have always believed the girls have great potential in netball – more recently the girls are seeing success as a team on tour and as individuals at both County and regional level–a real progression. The Severn Stars franchise will continue to provide excellent opportunities for our players. I am very excited about what the future has to hold.
