1983

Oaksway Netball Club was founded by a group of friends in Hartlepool in 1983. Originally, only made up of a few senior members, the club entered a team into the local County League. Over the next few years and with much hard work and determination, Oaksway membership grew and more teams were entered in the other local leagues and across a number of age groups. The Senior First Team progressed into the North East Regional Superleague and became the dominant team in the North East.

1992

Oaksway expanded its junior section and, with the assistance of Hartlepool Sports Development Officers, set up coaching sessions across all age groups from age 11 and upwards. Oaksway teams of all ages soon became formidable opponents in their matches, competing at National level, winning National U16, U18 and U21 titles along the way and supplying a number of England Junior internationals. The senior teams continued to develop and worked through the National League system and to this day maintain their place in National Premier Division 1.

1994

After winning the Regional Superleague, Oaksway became the only North East team to win a place in the National 4th Division.

2009

Oaksway supply a large number of senior players to a number of National Superleague teams. The junior sections continue to thrive, with training sessions for different age groups held most evenings. Each training session is run by qualified coaches who have themselves formerly been junior club members. Oaksway junior players make up the majority of the North East Talent Squad and currently provide a number of England Squad members at U17 and U19 level.
