About us

The Hong Kong Netball Association was founded in 1979. In June 2023, we renamed as Netball Hong Kong China (NHKC) to better represent our identity as a national sports association of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. NHKC is a member association of the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee and we are subvented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) to run a wide range of grassroots, school and academy to elite level netball programs in Hong Kong. We also run divisional leagues for ladies, men’s, mixed, joint-universities and juniors.

NHKC is a full member of World Netball, the internationally recognised governing body of the sport. Hong Kong competes at the bi-yearly Asian Championships and Asian Youth Championships, which double as Netball World Cup qualifier events for the Asia region. To expose our squads to international standards, NHKC organizes annual overseas training tours and hosts international tournaments. Over the years, we have hosted teams from Chinese Taipei, Gibraltar, Grenada, Ireland, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Zimbabwe.

As a leisure sport, there are over 1800 women, men and children who compete at different categories and divisional leagues co-organised by NHKC and LCSD. 

At the school front, Netball is very popular amongst ESF and international schools, with friendly games and inter-school competitions happening all year round. There are roughly 20 local primary and secondary schools that offer netball in their P.E. curriculum. With netball being included in the EACT Jockey Club Active School Program, the number of local schools playing netball is expected to rise.

Vision

At the heart of our vision is the belief that netball should be an accessible sport for all, regardless of age, gender, or ability.

We envision a future where every individual has the opportunity to participate in netball, promoting overall health and empowering individuals to realize their full potential in all aspects of their lives.

Mission

Our mission is to introduce netball to people of all ages in Hong Kong, starting from a young age, regardless of gender or ability. We aim to achieve this by collaborating with schools, offering comprehensive training programs, and organizing competitive events that cater to both professional and leisurely players.

Our ultimate goal is to establish Hong Kong as a leading force within the Asian netball community. Through continuous improvement, strategic planning, and dedicated efforts, we aim to elevate our national teams to become the top-ranked teams in Asia. We will foster a culture of excellence, teamwork, and sportsmanship, ensuring that our players embody the values that represent the best of Hong Kong.

By promoting the widespread participation and growth of netball, we seek to instill a lifelong love for the sport and its associated benefits, including physical fitness, mental well-being, and social connections. Through our inclusive approach, we aim to create a netball community that embraces diversity, encourages equal opportunities, and provides a supportive environment for all individuals to thrive.
