As we celebrate our first schools finals event in two years, we are delighted to announce a new partnership between Netball NI and J and K Coaches.

Netball NI is coming together with one Northern Ireland’s fastest growing coach companies for an exciting new partnership.

J and K Coaches, a long standing supporter of Netball NI events are expanding that support, becoming our official Schools Partner for the next two years.

Established in 2005, J and K Coaches provides high-quality service with guaranteed reliability and luxury at affordable rates. Operating a large fleet of luxurious and comfortable coaches throughout Ireland, UK and Europe they are firmly on the coach hire market for all your transportation needs both for sport and recreational activities.

The partnership will not only provide exclusive offers to Netball NI members but will crucially support Netball NI as we continue to grow our school netball provision to enable the participation opportunities and sustainability across this area of our sport.

Netball in NI is emerging strongly from the challenging pandemic downtime years and with pinnacle events on the horizon for our Warriors, Birmingham Commonwealth Games and World Cup Qualifiers, the impact and influence on our young players and coaching has never been more important. Netball NI want more young people to get involved in our sport and the significant role schools play in enabling this participation needs our continuous support.

Jim Quinn, Director of J and K Coaches:

“This is an exciting partnership which we have been working on for a while. Our work with Netball NI on events over the years has allowed us to build a solid relationship and we are now at the stage of developing that further. Schools is an area we are particularly passionate about, working daily on school runs and regularly on events/trips etc, we understand their needs and seeing the enjoyment school pupils get from playing their sport and being part of teams is hugely rewarding and we are encouraged that Netball NI are progressing their work around school provision and support. We look forward to continuing and growing a strong relationship with Northern Ireland’s schools, netballers and parents in the months ahead.”

Helen Stirling Chair of Netball Northern Ireland, added:

"We are delighted to bring J and K Coaches on board as our official Schools partner. Netball in Northern Ireland is getting back to full strength on the court and off the court we are growing our profile and increasing our presence in key areas across the business. This partnership is a significant step in moving forward our sport by providing our members with links to a company who not only understand and can support our school groups but can offer professional support to the wider netball family with their transport and holiday needs.’
