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 the Thursday Night B grade competition at the State Netball Centre. The team was coached by Ferruccio Servello, who is still 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 Centre, it was agreed that Metro Revellers was an appropriate fit.
Today Metro Revellers Netball Club comprises of twenty six teams. There are five teams in Premier League Open, two teams in A-Grade, three teams in B-Grade, three teams in 17 & Under, three teams in 15 & Under, four teams in 13 & Under, four teams in 11 & Under and two Net Set Go teams .
