Stratford Thunderbirds Netball Club
Stratford Thunderbirds Netball Club



The extraordinary expansion of Stratford Thunderbirds, reflects the growing popularity of the game nationally. Hundreds of local girls are meeting and bonding with each other, keeping fit, growing in confidence and achieving wonderful things as well as winning trophies and medals.

Thunderbirds also has an extensive band of willing volunteers, including Team Managers and a committee, working within budgets and strict statutory regulations, to keep a busy netball schedule on track. To continue the development of the club and to keep sport affordable, Thunderbirds needs more financial assistance.

With our larger packages we will issue a press release to local newspapers highlighting your support. For contributions of more than £1,500, we will create a short video interview for use in social media.


‘Friends of Thunderbirds’  - From £240 per year

These donations would help towards running costs, plus entering and travelling to tournaments.  

Awards Evening Sponsors – From £500

Thunderbirds aims to stage an Awards Evening in 2020, for players and their families, to celebrate the League titles and tournament medals won. More importantly the event acknowledges the progress of individuals and teams, good sportsmanship, exempliary behaviour, effort and raw talent. It also pays tribute  to the volunteers who make our netball club a reality.

We can offer publicity for companies who may wish to support the event with donated or subsidised services, or perhaps contribute to the cost of the event (such as venue hire, refreshments, entertainment).

Gazebo Sponsors – From £1,750

The club has a very busy schedule, travelling up and down the country to compete in all day tournaments against some of the best clubs in the country. We regularly enter tournaments in Manchester, Nottingham, Newbury, Bedford, Birmingham, Leighton Buzzard, Bromsgrove and Wolverhampton.

Many of our rivals have gazebos with club names, badges and sponsors emblazoned across them. They act as a necessary meeting point and protect our players from the extremes of the British weather.

These gazebos also provide an excellent opportunity for advertising! Our club needs several 3x6m team gazebos to cope with the number of teams entered. 

Team Mangers’ Kit – one off £2,500 donation.   

Our Team Managers are parent volunteers who put the coaches’ training into action. They dutifully mobilise, supervise, motivate, collect match fees and administer first aid to girls in their charge. To be easily identified and suitably prepared for all seasons, they need a club uniform. Since they are volunteers, giving up a great deal of their time, the club would prefer the cost of their uniform to be covered.   

The company sponsoring our Team Mangers would have their company logo featured on the kit worn by up to 20 volunteers, i.e. polo shirts, hoodies, jackets and holdalls.
