Oxfordshire's 24hr Netball Marathon raising vital money for our chosen charity,
Dogs for Good.
The Net-a-thon will run from 9am on Saturday, 2nd July until 9am Sunday, 3rd July 2022 at the home of Oxfordshire Netball, Marsh Lane, Oxford, OX3 0NQ.
For two years we have been waiting patiently for the pandemic to be over so we could run this Net-a-thon to raise money for our chosen charity Dogs for Good. We are super excited to be able to get the "netball family" back together and celebrate. It's going to be an amazing 24 hours with lots of different events to suit everyone!
Join us for a junior or coaching workshop, enter a team in the walking or mixed tournaments, or perhaps you want the challenge of playing in our 'All-Night' tournament! See more details below.
Every single penny raised through ticket sales & sponsorship will be going to the charity.
You don't need to wait until Net-a-thon to start making a difference. Dogs for Good are taking donations now or you can purchase one of our event t-shirts below.
All ages, all abilities, all genders... something for everyone!

Dogs for Good transforms lives through the power of
specially trained dogs.
The charity supports people with a wide range of disabilities and conditions including physical disabilities, autism, dementia and learning disabilities and trains dogs in a number different ways to help provide practical support, improve independence, build confidence and reduce social isolation.
Each year, the charity receives around 5,000 enquiries from people who are looking for support through specially trained dogs. It takes nearly two years to train each of the charity’s assistance dogs and community dogs, and currently Dogs for Good cannot help all the children and adults that could benefit from their services, so every pound we raise through our Net-a-Thon will help them train more dogs and support more people.
Many of us will have experienced first-hand the many untold rewards that spending time with a pet dog brings. So imagine then, the impact of a dog that has been specially trained to bring support to disabled people. Every dog trained by Dogs for Good is carefully matched to support the needs of an individual or a family, for example helping a physical disabled child or adult with practical tasks such as opening doors, picking up dropped items or helping with dressing or undressing. For an autistic child and their wider family, a dog can provide a calming support and motivator that enables a child to feel more confident in busy and potentially overwhelming places.
