Mission statement

If You Need sells high quality bags made from real netball bibs. Like a true Wing Defence we are here if you need.


2018-19 was a year of growth for If You Need, with the number of netball bib bags dispatched increasing four-fold on the previous financial year.

These figures were significantly below the target of 625,721. This target was set to align with the number of Australians who play netball according to AusSport.

This shortfall means that at least 625,525 Australian netballers don’t own a netball bib bag, or at best, are sharing one with a friend. This estimate is conservative, as it is known that some netball bib bag owners aren’t netballers and just find them useful.


If You Need posted regularly on Facebook and Instagram to show netball bib bag in all their forms. We also Liked lots of photos of people playing netball.


If You Need believes in the equality of all netball positions. We are pleased to report that netball position diversity noticeably improved in 2018-19. However, Wing Defence and Wing Attack bags are still under-represented and this requires action. If You Need will continue to work to achieve our target of equal distribution through our awareness raising campaign Wings of Pride.
