The International Netball Federation would like to congratulate England Netball who were named Sport Organisation of the Year at the 2019 BT Sports Industry Awards.
Last night, Thursday 25th April 2019, the sporting industry gathered at Battersea Evolution, London, for the annual commercial and creative showcase.
The BT Sports Industry Awards aims to showcase a selection of sporting individuals, teams and organisations, all shortlisted for a variety of different awards, with one of those being crowned the winner.
England Netball were up against British Rowing, European Tour, Formula E. Premiership Rugby and The FA, in the Sport Organisation of the Year award.
After accepting the award on behalf of England Netball, Joanna Adams, Chief Executive of England Netball, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to be named Sport Organisation of the Year! It is a real honour to be acknowledged alongside so many successful people and organisations in the sporting industry.
“This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of all of the people that work for and represent England Netball. We continue to grow and develop our offering to ensure that netball can be enjoyed by everyone from a grassroots to an elite level because we know this sport can have such a positive influence on people’s lives.
“Participation has grown significantly over the last 12 months and a huge part of that is due to the success of the Vitality Roses at the Commonwealth Games in April 2018. We are now looking ahead to the Vitality Netball World Cup and are preparing for participation numbers to soar once again.
“It’s been phenomenal year for our sport and we are working hard to ensure 2019 is another exceptional year for England Netball. We’ve got a lot of exciting things in the pipeline!”
