About the Evening League
Croydon Netballl League runs the Evening Netball League on Monday and Thursday evenings at Riddlesdown Collegiate Honister Heights, Purley CR8 1EX. The Evening League has been in existence for of 31 years and its main aim is to provide additional opportunities for teams of different skill levels and experience to compete in matches from September through to April each year (matches are split into Part 1- September to December and Part 2 - January to April)
The Evening League is a competitive but friendly league with the emphasis on good play and sportsmanship rather than a battle to finish "top of the table". To this end new players and teams are encouraged to take part as it offers a varitey of levels of play without the pressure to collect points. To reflect this, CNL awards a trophy to the most sporting team for both nights at the end of the season.
The Evening League is an excellent opportunity for new teams and players to play, good experience for players who have come back to the sport after a break (Back To Netball), training sessions for current clubs and for umpire training and mentoring which is also offered for those inclined to take up the whistle and officiate.
The matches are played at 7.15pm and 8.15pm, with three matches being played at the same time. Thematches are 40 minutes in duration and are not centrally timed. The cost to enter the Evening League is between £75 and £90 per part depending on the number of teams entering. All players wishing to play in the Evening League must be afiliated to England Netball. Teams must arrange their own umpire.
