What a fantastic season of Netball DESS has had. There has been great attendance and commitment to training at all ages and levels. We have between 4-6 teams per year group and all receive high quality training sessions each week from our expert team of coaches.
All league matches have now finished but there are still lots of tournaments coming up so training will continue each week as per usual to help prepare for these events and competitions.
Our development teams have their first fixture against Foremarke next week (Wednesday 20th Nov. at DESS) and we can’t wait to see them apply their new skills on court. Good luck girls!

External Netball Clubs
All players of every age and every ability level are encouraged to join an external team in addition to playing for the DESS school team. This has a plethora of benefits and provides players with more court time, playing experience and development. Some recommended clubs are: Active Netball (RU Active), Tigers, Hurricanes, Exiles, Desert Girl Netball Club and Dubai Netball Academy.
