Netball England left the following feedback after their visit to Derby Arena:

  • friendly staff who would drop what they were doing to assist when needed - very helpful
  • clean changing rooms
  • clean and perfectly set courts - it is very difficult to find three available courts next to each other
  • lots of surrounding space
  • head coach of two years said it was by far the best camp they have hosted thanks to the organisation of the arena and how accommodating they are
  • the hotels and meals sourced by Derby Arena were fantastic
  • the meal at the Arena was brilliant and it was nice to be amongst the customers in reception and be able to see the track and courts whilst eating
  • the gym facilities are outstanding - they are clean, easy to use and had everything people could ask for
  • this is the smoothest booking for an England Netball camp taken.
