Manchester Thunder is the Vitality Netball Superleague franchise for Manchester and North West England supporting and developing elite netball and providing the next generation of international netballers.
Thunder have an impressive pedigree in the Superleague - we were the 2012 and 2014 champions, runners-up in 2016 and third in the new look competition in 2017. Our U17s and U19s won England Netball’s tournament in 2017 and our young players are six-time winners of the National Performance League.
With our Performance Pathway, Thunder plays an ever-increasing role in finding, inspiring and developing the most talented young netballers from every background to make them the next generation of leading netballers for their schools and clubs, for Thunder and for England.
We’re also committed to being part of the community, promoting diversity and are extending our work to offer netball coaching programmes, fun netball camps and inspirational netball tours to as many people in as many parts of the city and the region as possible.
