Yes, we know, we know, it’s July, we’re in the middle of Summer (well – supposedly, the weather doesn’t think so at the moment) and we shouldn’t be thinking of Christmas yet. However, Santa Claus has a long reaching arm and we’ve got a great product line up this year, so without further ado, our top netball Christmas products for 2023 are:
You can’t play netball without a netball, and we’ve just loaded a good range of new ball designs and styles from big brands including Gilbert and Mitre.
- The Mitre Oasis Mini Netball – a mini version of the larger Oasis ball, the mini is ideal for gifting and recreational use.
- The Gilbert Pulse – a good quality netball with a blended rubber surface and Gilbert’s Duragrip pimple outer configuration. The Pulse comes in a range styles and colours including lime green as linked, blue, multicolour and red.
- The Gilbert Ultragrip – the Ultragrip is a match ball, designed to give an “ultra” experience on handling in all weather and surface conditions.
A decent pair of netball shoes are essential and they’re always well received by netball players, especially those who may play very frequently and as such go through shoes quickly.
- Asics GEL Netburner SUPER FF Netball Shoe – new for 2023, this is a performance shoe which utilises ASICS FLYTEFOAM technology inside for extra cushioning, plus their AHARPLUS outsole and removable ORTHOLITE sockliner. Available in sizes 5-8 in half size increments.
- Asics GEL-Netburner Academy 8 Netball Shoe – another new shoe for 2023, Academy shoes are designed specifically for netball players with spEVA midsoles, inner gel cushioning system, removable sockliner and reinforced with ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber for extra durability.
- ASICS GEL Pulse 6 netball shoe - ASICS are really on the ball with netball shoes this year; the ASICS GEL-Pulse 6 have 2 cushioning systems at the rear and forefoot, as well as full length guidance lines to aid gait efficiency, ASIC’s spEVA Midsole cushioning, AHAR+ Outsoles and ASIC’s Trusstic system to retain integrity whilst reducing the wright of the shoe.
Who doesn’t need a new bag, especially when it comes to lugging around netball kit. We’ve got a wide range to cater for all needs, including:
- The Gilbert Club Rucksack V3 – A stylish, multi-compartment rucksack that can be used not only for sports equipment but also everyday activities such as the gym or training. It has sections for valuables, laptops and essentials, as well as adjustable padded shoulders, top grab handle and easy pull zips.
- The Gilbert Deluxe Holdall – available in black or navy, the Deluxe holdall can also be used as a backpack. It has a large main compartment plus accessory, valuables and shoe pockets.
- The Gilbert Club Boot Bag V2 – specifically designed for holding netball shoes and boots, a true classic boot bag with internal pocket for valuables.
Netball clothing makes an ideal gift for any netball player or fan, with a range of everyday wear to match/training wear available. Be sure to check you have the right sizing and style before you buy though, or consider buying a Morrant Gift Voucher if that could be a better option.
If you prefer to buy online, here are some of our top netball clothing picks for presents:
- Morrant Performance Skort – a stylish option with styled sides, available from size 6-16 and in 2 colours. Made from 250gsm performance power-stretch polyester with spandex on the outer and a 200gsm version of the fabric for the inner shorts.
- Gilbert Pulse Netball Top – Available in a range of sizes, the Gilbert Pulse top allows for ventilation and moisture evaporation during play with contrast side panels for style. Can be used with patch style bibs.
- Gilbert Eclipse Netball Dress – some players prefer a dress over top and skirt/skort combo; if this applies to your intended giftee, then look no further than the Gilbert Eclipse range of netball dresses.
