The history of the Revellers

The Metro Revellers Netball Club was established in 1994 when seven students from St. Aloysius Girls College in North Melbourne formed a team to compete in Thursday Night B grade competitions at the State Netball Centre. The team was coached by Ferruccio Servello, who remains the head coach at the club today.

The team was originally set up because some of the players could not afford the large fees that were being sought by other clubs. A fee structure was set up that would see the coach working voluntarily and the players obtaining their own sponsorship. At this stage, the only name the team really had was Revellers.

 The players were able to secure a small sponsorship deal with Waverley Private Hospital and it was agreed that the team would be known as the Waverley Revellers. The team continued to use this named until 2000 when the club decided to use a name that typified the locality of the club base, and as all training and games were played at the State Netball and Hockey Centre, it was agreed that ‘Metro Revellers’ was more of an appropriate fit.

Today, Metro Revellers Netball Club is comprised of over twenty teams, playing across all grades and age groups, with our highest team competing in Division 2 of the Premier League Open Division competition on a Tuesday night. In 2016, we developed a direct affiliation with Victorian Netball League club Yarra Valley Ariels. Our head coach Ferruccio Servello works in close proximity with Ariels coaches to develop Metro’s young players with aspirations, motivation & talent.
