Interest in the sport of netball has never been higher.
With matches of the Vitality Netball SuperLeague streamed live on Sky Sports, the increasing professionalism of the sport calls for specialist kit that is designed to enhance performance and provide unrivalled levels of comfort.
Whatever the level of your netball club, there are a few important things to consider when looking for a new kit.
- Explore and choose your kit style
There are two main styles of kit available in netball, which comes down primarily to personal preference. Some teams prefer to play in a separate netball kit with a technical t-shirt and skort or skirt combo. Other teams prefer an all-in-one netball dress.
We’re seeing an increased number of teams prefer the dress – it’s the style of choice seen throughout the Vitality SuperLeague.
Scimitar can provide both custom options for your team, and can provide a range of styles with a design that offers pure comfort throughout training sessions and matches.
- Opt for sublimation printed kit
As sublimation sportswear specialists, we highly recommend this style of print as it allows complete freedom of design. There’s no limitations to colour and sponsor placement, while the sublimation method infuses the ink directly into the fabric, which avoids fading during washing. Put simply, your custom netball kit will last longer.
The freedom offered with all-over sublimation lets your imagination run wild. Create kit that is unique with pantone-specific matching for your university or your club colours!
- Choose your accessories carefully
So, you’ve selected your style and your printing method. Next up, you’ll need to decide if you want velcro tabs for your position patches, or whether you prefer to wear bodice over the head bibs.
Either way, this will need to be incorporated into your initial designs.
How about the personalisation aspect? Besides the patches, there is the opportunity to add names to your dresses for a small additional cost.
Names are included as part of the sublimation printing process, again providing durability and a fade-free finish. Weigh up the options available in advance and work out whether this level of personalisation is needed by your team.
- Training & Social Gear
Do your training sessions or matches take place outside?
We would also recommend keeping warm with custom club base layers, which work to moderate body temperature. This keeps you cool in hot conditions and warm when in the cold. We can create custom base layers to include your club colours and logos, allowing for a truly professional approach to your kit.
Go that step further with a sublimation tracksuit and/or hoodies, which can be made in the same design as your custom netball kit.
