Morecrofts jumps to increase support for inclusive netball club

Breaking new ground in community sports sponsorship, Morecrofts Solicitors has committed to inclusivity in sports by equipping a netball club with innovative new kits and equipment, introducing a game-changing option for players to choose shorts over the traditional netball dress.

The firm has supported the eponymous Morecrofts Netball Club for the past six years, helping it to evolve its membership to more than 60 players aged between 16 and 60. It now has seven teams taking part in both midweek leagues and Liverpool’s Sunday Netball League. New players are welcome to attend training sessions at Archbishop Blanch School every Wednesday 7.30pm-9pm.

This latest investment has allowed the club to purchase new high-quality kits for all of its players and includes an option to wear branded club shorts and T-shirt as an alternative to the more traditional netball dress.

Morecrofts Netball Club captain Rachael Lomax said: “In the past six years, we’ve seen our team grow and diversify, bringing the joy of netball to players of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds. The support from Morecrofts Solicitors has been critical to our sustained success, and we deeply appreciate their latest contribution to our playing kits.

“To our knowledge, we stand alone in the league in offering an alternative to the traditional netball dress, providing shorts and T-shirts for those who prefer to wear them. This important step towards inclusivity ensures everyone can play in comfort, helping to eliminate barriers to participation in the sport we love.”

Alison Lobb, managing partner at Morecrofts, said: “We originally began supporting the club due to links between our staff and some of its players and the relationship has since gone from strength to strength. Netball plays a really important part in our communities and we understand the health and social benefits it can offer to players. This latest idea to offer shorts instead of dresses will undoubtedly appeal to some potential players and we are fully supportive of any measures that help to increase participation and make sport more inclusive for all.”
