Training

Omega Netball Club tries to cater for all standards of netball skill, but are always appreciative of the highly skilled player. The training regime for Omega Netball Club starts on 6th September, running weekly thereafter, on a Thursday night with the following schedule:-

6.00pm – 7.00pm  for Yrs 6, 7 and 8 age-groups

7.00pm – 8.00pm for our Youth Squad

8.00pm to 9.30pm  for our Senior Squads

Training is held in the Herts Regional College Sports Hall, Broxbourne Campus, running through to the end of March (with the exception of half term weeks and finishing end of November due to the December Christmas Party Period!).

The end of training to align with the end of the Winter season allows us to facilitate the start of a busy summer season, with all Senior and Youth teams playing in at least 2 leagues weekly and we aim to enter a Junior team into a league in the 2019 summer season.

The first few training sessions will work on fitness and the basic ball skills lost during the summer break. This will then move on to a more sophisticated schedule, inter-mixed with FastNet sessions.

The ambition of Omega Netball Club this season, outside winning all games, is to sustain the coveted Bronze Club Action Plan Scheme (CAPS) award and to build a Junior Omega Netball Club section having gained experience over the past 2 years with our Youths.  This will be a massive challenge, but one the Club will prevail.

Team Coach

Paul Kenny

Paul Kenny has been involved in netball for many years.  His involvement commenced as a result of participation in sports and social activities for British Telecom (BT); mainly football and cricket for male colleagues.

It was felt that female staff were being neglected, and this resulted in Paul being asked to investigate the possibility of involving women in company sports activities.  With little knowledge of female sports, he discovered Netball was high on the female employee wish list.

Paul attended coaching and umpiring courses to setup a BT team representing Tottenham telephone exchange called Totex, and they played in a works league in Enfield.  The Totex team went on to join the Senior Netball League in Broomfield Park, Palmers Green and soon changed their name to Enfield Netball Club and boasted three teams – Eagles, Falcons and Hawks.  The Enfield first team Eagles were promoted over four divisions to the first division where they remained unbeaten for two years.

Paul’s involvement in netball grew quite rapidly after joining Middlesex County Netball Association as Umpiring Secretary, and as umpire for the Middlesex County teams gaining an Intermediate Umpiring award and Regional Coaching status.  He was awarded a Life Vice Presidency for services to the Middlesex County Netball Association.

Over the years Paul has coached Oxford University, Hertfordshire University and many clubs including Oakwood Netball Club, Turnford Netball Club, Nomads Netball Club, Crosskeys Netball Club and he states, his last club Omega Netball Club.
