Roars, Tigers and Jets Coach

Hello, my name is Jo and I am one of the Penketh Panther Coaching Volunteers.

 With my netball background, in 2016, I was asked by the club to become part of the team and since then I have gained my Level 2 coaching qualification and I'm working towards an umpiring qualification.

Coaching our players is great! I look forward to seeing the children, watching them grow passion for the game and develop lifetime skills that hopefully one day they will look back on and think “Jo taught me that”.




Safeguarding Officer

Whiskers, Pinks and U19 Coach

I'm Vic and I have two roles in Penketh Panthers Netball Club: I am the Safeguarding Officer and also a Level 2 trained coach.

I currently coach teams from year 10 upwards. I became involved with netball when my two daughters were looking for a hobby. They joined PPNC and loved it and have now been part of the growing club for 6 years. PPNC is unique: I love that we accept players from all backgrounds, no matter what their ability. And it is run by volunteers whose only aim is to develop youngsters and give them confidence in their abilities. I find coaching extremely rewarding: whilst it's great to see young players improving, it's also lovely to see them forging new friendships through their play and learning the importance of teamwork.




Kittens Coach

Hi, my name is Ali, and I am the Kittens coach which I have had the pleasure of doing since 2018.

I still play netball myself after having a break of 15 years after schooI. I joined a local club and have played ever since. I love playing as part of a team and have made some lifelong friends.

Both of my daughters are now part of our Panthers Family and I can only hope it brings them as much joy and friendships as it has me.

All of our players are friendly and committed and we welcome new members with open arms. Each week the girls learn new skills and watching the delight in their faces during matches, whether it be scoring a goal, intercepting a pass or getting a rebound is fantastic.

Our club’s motto truly is……


Fun, Fitness, Friendship, Fairplay & Family


Paws Coach

My name is Louise Jones and I currently have a daughter in year 6 who plays for the club. Before having my family, I was a secondary PE teacher which is where my love of teaching / coaching stems from.

 I was approached by the club to help out and having sat on the side-lines watching my daughter play, I knew it was an opportunity that I could not pass by.

 I love watching the girls play and develop their skills and fitness in a fun environment with their friends.


Claws Coach

I became caoch for the love of the sport, my daughter started playing and it ignited my love again!


Cubs and Bobcats Coach  

Hi, I am Stacy and I coach players from reception to year 2 and also year 8. I love every minute of it! I started helping out at the end of 2018 when my daughter joined, and I fell in love with netball and the club.

I asked the girls what their best bit is about training each week and every week I get the same answer; having fun and making new friends. That answer makes me smile week in and week out.

Our club treats every child the same no matter what their ability, and every child walks out with a smile. We stand for fair play, fun, fitness, family and friends.

George & Charlotte

Tails Coaches

Our introduction to the club came after our two daughters joined. We loved watching their confidence grow each week in this amazing sport. Watching them be part of something special naturally led us to wanting to get involved with the club, give something back to the community and be part of the bigger journey with our girls.

George has a wealth of knowledge in the fitness industry and I love working with children in performing arts.

We look forward to seeing the children and watching them enjoy the sport each week, 

We promise that when your child enters the training court, they will feel part of a team, learn skills, get fit and grow in confidence.

Most importantly, they will feel part of something special!

Becca Herridge

Roars and Tigers Coach

There is something about coaching a skill and then watching that skill be played out.  Watching the positive journey our players go on both physically and mentally is amazing to see!
