Netball bookings blooming since England Roses Commonwealth Gold
MyLocalPitch reports 50% bounce in netball bookings since epic final triumph
MyLocalPitch, the leading grassroots sports online search and booking platform, reported a 50% increase in netball bookings the week after England Roses’ Commonwealth Netball Gold.
Tracey Neville’s England side caught everyone’s attention following an epic finish to the tournament and it’s produced a 48.9% increase in netball enquiries on the site.
Netball pageviews grew by 49.8% the week following the final where Helen Housby netted the winner in the final second to beat hosts and competition favourites Australia.
CEO of MyLocalPitch, Jamie Foale, commented: “England Roses’ incredible win was an outstanding achievement and it’s awesome to see it having a positive impact at the grassroots level. It’s an ideal time of year to play netball and there are many fantastic places to enjoy a game. The more people we have playing, the better, and if this momentum continues the Olympics are going to have a hard time keeping the sport out of the games.”
