“I’m delighted to be joining the board at Netball NI. It’s an extremely exciting time for netball, with teams getting back to play after COVID and the upcoming Commonwealth Games. I’m looking forward to collaborating with the rest of the team over the next few years and supporting the fantastic work of Netball NI.”


Helen Stirling, Chair Netball NI

'We were impressed with the calibre of applications we received for our vacant Board position, so much so we had a 3 stage selection process to determine who we offered the position to. It is a positive time for Netball as a sport with the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, World Cup Qualifiers and our NI clubs, schools and social participants completing their first season back following the long covid enforced stop in our game, and for Netball NI as an organisation as we increase our staff team with both business and development roles. We believe we have the right Board Directors in place to work with and support our staff to deliver our strategy, Strongest Together, for our members, future members and stakeholders in all areas of the business. I am thrilled to welcome Lisa to the Board and know she will enjoy being a part of the NNI team. 


We are sure our members join us in welcoming Lisa and wish her well in her role.
