Sport and shopping can now go hand in hand for netballers nationwide, thanks to a new relationship between England Netball and Matalan.
The official launch of a new Matalan and England Netball Reward card at the retail giant’s Shrewsbury store now means that affiliated members of England Netball can use their new version of the Matalan Reward card and three per cent of everything they spend will go towards England Netball and supporting community netball.
Paul Clark, CEO of England Netball, Barbara Bishop the new President of England Netball and Matalan’s chairman, John Mills, launched the Reward card, joined by the Wrekin College netball 1st team. The group then headed to Wrekin College in Telford to shoot some goals with the school’s netball team on their new courts.
“We’re delighted to have formed a relationship with such a popular, mainstream retailer like Matalan,” said Paul.
“I hope that everybody who is affiliated with England Netball will use the reward card and in doing so, support our organisation and its schemes, such as the Back to Netball Campaign that is flourishing as a pilot scheme in the North West.”
Matalan’s chairman John Mills said: “Matalan is proud to support such a great sport and together, I hope that we’ll be able to promote netball to our customers and all ages of women and girls nationwide and play our part in growing the participation within the sport.”
