History of the Club

Cosmopolitan Netball Club was founded in 1972 by Gloria Baylis. Some of the original members are still with us, in person and in spirit.



COSMOPOLITAN NETBALL CLUB

The following is an excerpt from a letter by Gloria Baylis on the occasion of our 10th Anniversary, in 1982


One day, whilst looking through the parks and recreation magazine, I saw an ad asking girls and women to join a netball club about to be formed. I called the number listed and was informed that registrations were closed as the club had reached it’s quota. At this point, we applied to parks and recreation for playing facilities and we were given the gym at Robert Service Sr. Public School, 945 Danforth Road. Over the years, Parks & Recreation have helped the club by providing us with playing area and advertising in their magazine.

In time, we became a member of Women’s Netball Association and participated in their Annual inter-club tournaments. Furthermore, we have had members of our club play in the Ontario Provincial Tournaments and also play for the Ontario Squad.
Gloria Baylis – Founder.


In 1972 the club had 26 members and in the first year they bought, bibs, balls, poles, first aid kit, whistles, trunk and rule books. Which came to a total of $228.55. They joined WNA and the reps were required to take 1 bottle of wine to the meetings, which the club paid for. The executives of the club were Gloria Baylis, Irene Somerville, Vicki Kent, Myra McEwan, Yvette Carrington, and Audrey Riggs.

In 1984, Gloria Baylis was recognized by the City of Scarborough for her hard work and valuable contributions to her sport – Netball and for encouraging young girls and women to become active in Netball.

Over the years we have been in many tournaments, Windsor, Burlington, Bramalea, Ajax and around Toronto. We have trophies to prove it, including bruises. We’ve run tournaments of our own for our 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th and 32nd anniversaries.
