Welcome to Jacks Netball Club

Our Club has seen great success in its time - from Premier championships, other grade and trophy winners, representative honours, along with many social outings.

Whilst proud of our competitive success we are founded on camaraderie and friendship and this has seen us as the largest non-school club in Nelson for many years. 

We proudly celebrated 40 years as a club in 2020.

Jacks Netball Club was founded in 1980 by the McCracken sisters; Lyndsay Hikuroa and Sue Martin. Lyndsay’s husband Jack was the first sponsor – hence the name “Jacks”.  His legacy lives on with daughter Jodi playing for the Club.

Jacks started with just one team and grew rapidly gaining a new team every year until reaching its highest membership with 15 teams in 1995.  We currently have seven teams from Premier down including four training and three social teams with ages ranging from teens to 60 plus.
