Netball >>Removal of netball from the national sports calendar

At the end of the 1974 / 75 Academic year, the Ghana Education Service decided to STEP – DOWN Netball in schools in the country, ie throughout the educational system in favour of the development of basketball in schools.

This ‘step down’ according to the G.E.S meant that Netball with effect from the 1975/76 Academic year did not feature on the National Basic Schools Sports festival programme, owing to this decision Netball was not played in schools, because it was not on the National Basic Schools sports calender and so  teachers were not interested in teaching the game of Netball in schools.

 

 

This made Netball to become extinct in schools in the country. The only region which kept on playing Netball at the basic schools level was Eastern region, which is a credit to the former Eastern Regional Sports Coordinator for G.E.S Mr. E.K Kyere and his assistant at that time Mr. Kofi Sarpong.
