Ruyton Netball Club

Ruyton Netball Club (RNC) is run in conjunction with Ruyton Girls’ School. RNC is open to Ruyton students present, past and the community.


Dear Ruyton Netball Club families,

The current COVID-19 pandemic is causing significant disruptions across all sections of our community.  Please rest assured that the health and wellbeing of our community including our staff, families, and students involved in all activities, is of the utmost importance to us.  As a result, and by Government directive we have cancelled all netball games and training until further notice.

We thank you for your understanding and wish you well during these challenging times.  If you have any concerns regarding our decision please contact Ruyton’s Director of Business, Finance and Facilities, Leanne Smith, smithl@ruyton.vic.edu.au 




The RNC provides an opportunity to learn how to play netball and develop skills, through participation in team competitions.  Our teams play in the Boroondara Netball Association (BNA) competition. We provide expert coaching and skills development to present and past Ruyton students and the community.  Our teams start at Year 4 to Year 12. The RNC is a non profit organisation with all money raised from membership fees, fundraising and other initiatives reinvested into the club.
