As St Paul’s flagship team, the Open A has high performance expectations placed on individual players on and off the court.

The netball programme at St Paul’s places emphasis on skill development and making the most of all opportunities that may arise. Our netball teams enjoy top quality facilities which include the gymnasium with a spring floor, gym equipment and a heated 25m swimming pool.

In terms of competition throughout the season, St Paul’s supports the representative structure and encourages the involvement by our athletes. We have strong links with the Waikato Bay of Plenty Zone programme and have a number of girls involved in that scene.

With a range of fixtures, the netball programme caters for our top athletes and those just wanting to give it a go with friends.

St Paul’s teams compete in a number of competitions including:

  • Saturday open grade competitions
  • Monday night league
  • Upper North Island secondary schools' tournament
  • Sports exchange with Tauranga Girls' College
  • The Development (Year 11 and 12) team take part in the annual quadrangular tournament with Scots College, St Peter’s School and Kings College
