Walking Netball comes to Harry Mitchell Leisure Centre

England Netball's latest initiative is heading to Harry Mitchell Leisure Centre this Autumn. The sessions start on Wednesday 12th September 11.00am-12.00noon.

Walking Netball has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Often, one of netball’s strengths is that people never forget playing the sport and the memories as well as the love for the game never leave.

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.

From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.

Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.

Steve Compson, Duty Manager, commented "we are all very excited to be hosting this programme. Whether you used to play or a complete beginner you are welcome to join us. The cost is just £2.50 per session so we hope at attract plenty of local residents. "
