The Aspley Devils Story

Aspley Devils Netball Club high five.

It all started in 1975 when 3 avid netballers – Amy, Gwen and Jenny – wanted a club to join that was close to their home suburb of Aspley. Unable to find one, they formed one and in its first year the Aspley Devils Netball Club fielded 1 senior team and 1 junior team!

In the years following the club grew and grew and they soon realised they needed a home training ground.

The netball club approached Craigslea State High School with a proposition of providing lighting for the school’s existing netball courts, funded in part by many lamingtons, bake sales and Wednesday night bingo sessions at the local football club!

A fantastic deal was struck whereby the netball club would pay for the installation of the lights and the school would allow the club to train there.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing though! Amy recalls the local council, having concerns with potential noise from the training at Craigslea, and requested the residents surrounding the school be approached and approve of the light installations and potential noisy training.

So Amy, Gwen and others from the netball club went door-knocking through the neighbourhood, armed with whistles to show the residents that the noise would be minimal!

With the neighbourhood on board, the lights were installed and Aspley Devils Netball Club has retained a great relationship with the school ever since.

Throughout the 70’s and 80’s the Aspley Devils Netball Club were based at Bradbury Park, however they moved to the Downey Park Netball Association in the 90’s. This move has proven extremely beneficial as Downey Park currently has over 3000 teams playing, providing one of the largest competitions in Queensland, and a great pathway for aspiring representative players.

From its original two teams, Aspley Devils Netball Club now has teams in every age division, from 7 year-olds all the way up to Opens (including some 60+ year-olds).

They have mothers and daughters playing; fathers, mothers and sisters coaching and managing teams; and fathers, sons, mothers and daughters umpiring for the club.

More than just a netball club, Aspley Devils Netball truly is a proud family club.

Last Saturday my daughter in team #11 was squaring off to a vastly taller and better opposition. Word obviously got around the Devils about the game, and the Devils turned up in droves. The cheering and support were something, as a club, that we should be very thankful and proud of. I was the scorer and the difference between the supporters for the teams was Enya vs AC/DC . Thank you Devil family. Gave us a great memory during a huge defeat. Netball was the big winner on the day!! Amazing!

Joining Aspley Devils Netball was a game-changer for me! The new friends, awesome coaching, and incredible club spirit have made my experience here unforgettable. I’m proud to be part of this amazing netball family!

Such fun being a part of this beautiful club!

Great support around the games!! Love this club!
